F1 hopes not to repeat old mistakes with cycles of "ups and downs"

The new motorization rules of Formula 1 from the 2026 season have contributed to the arrival of two important German manufacturers. Audi has already confirmed its presence after an announcement made during the Belgian Grand Prix, and Porsche is expected to announce its merger with Red Bull soon.

The arrival of the firm of the four rings and those of Stuttgart means that, at least, the grid will have five brands in the Great Circus when the course of 2026 begins: Mercedes, Ferrari, Renault, Audi and Porsche .

Honda has also not completely ruled out its presence once its agreement with Red Bull ends, so there would be up to six suppliers that would make up the grid.

The history of Formula 1 and other high-level international categories, such as the WEC, has shown that the different championships have great difficulties in maintaining such a number of manufacturers in the long term, since not all can win and the “losers” usually abandon their projects.

However, the president of the Grand Circus, Stefano Domenicalli , and that of the FIA, Mohammed ben Sulayem , believe that the way in which the engine rules have been drafted, together with the financial strength of Formula 1 in the new was the budget limit, it should be enough to support everyone for a long period of time.

The Italian said: “I think in the history of Formula 1 we have seen teams come and go, like the manufacturers. The beauty of the choice we have made together is that we are convinced that, technically speaking, it is the right one. .

“That will allow, from the technological, sustainable and economic perspective, to have and keep the teams and motorcyclists, in addition to adding more to that equation,” he assured. “Right now, if you look at the cycles, I think we’re on the positive side [and rising].”

“It will be a long time before, I hope it will be as late as possible, until we go to the other side, but now everything is good, we are in a great trend,” defended the maximum responsible for the category.

FIA president Mohammed ben Sulayem said the push to ensure the rules work for both current manufacturers and new ones coming in was instrumental in helping to believe that Formula 1 could keep all car brands in the project.

“I am sure that the sustainability of motorcyclists will be there,” he said. “What we invested at the time to have the right power unit was a lot. The downside was the hours on the power bank and the budget cap, so we made sure that both parties, the brands that were already there, and the newcomers They had the chance.”

“We have worked it out with all the stakeholders, so I am sure they are here to stay, it is not a temporary thing,” said ben Sulayem , who acknowledged there was no chance of attracting manufacturers like Audi and Porsche if they had not changed. the rules.

“If we [the FIA] hadn’t modified the power units, we wouldn’t have given the option for new teams to come in. There’s no way a big manufacturer comes in as a supplier if they don’t have the chance, no one wants to come in to be humiliated.” , he added.

“In the negotiation there were many ups and downs, committing all the time with Audi and the teams, as well as with Stefano [Domenicalli], so the results are fruitful,” said the FIA president.
