Volkswagen has decided to give up auto racing altogether.

While rumors over the years have hinted at a program one day in Formula 1 for the world’s second largest automaker, one of the board members, Dr Frank Welsch, said VW will carry instead all its attention to sustainable electromobility.

“For this we are pooling our strengths and have decided to end our own motorsport activities for the Volkswagen brand,” did he declare.

Volkswagen, based in Wolfsburg, has confirmed that the 169 employees of the motorsport division will be integrated into the other activities of the German company.

The decision does not affect other brands in the VW Group, including Audi and Porsche. These two brands would still be strongly requested by Red Bull for entry into Formula 1 as an engine manufacturer by 2025-2026, when new power units arrive.

Helmut marko responded “no comment” upon the announcement of this decision and rumors of ongoing discussions. Note that Audi seems to be heading again towards Endurance (WEC) after announcing its upcoming withdrawal from Formula E.
