This season, Formula 1 is switching to a new generation of cars, however, the power plants will remain practically the same, but in four years the next important step should be taken: in 2026, the championship teams will receive new engines.
So far, a certain intrigue remains, since everyone is waiting for the official decision of the Volkswagen Group to enter Formula 1, which has already been written and said a lot. Stefano Domenicali also made it clear in an interview with Auto Bild Motorsport that VW’s management should get ahead this month.
“I think there is an important month ahead, as we await the decision of the Volkswagen Group,” quotes the German edition of the words of the president and CEO of Formula 1. “It will be great if this concern comes to the world championship, but I cannot speak on behalf of VW. I have worked with these wonderful people for several years (from March 2016 to December 2020, Domenicali was the CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, which is part of the VW Group), and I know the efforts they are putting into developing a strategy for the future. “
Volkswagen plans to gradually curtail the production of cars with engines running on fuel obtained from hydrocarbons, but Formula 1 has taken a course towards using biofuels. Domenicali believes that the development of a modern hybrid power plant is an opportunity for such a large automaker to achieve success in the development of highly efficient technologies.
“The new hybrid powertrains will have a more powerful electrical part, but at the same time we are switching to the use of biofuels, and this could open another promising development path for the VW Group – in addition to the production of electric vehicles,” Domenicali said. – By the way, this applies not only to the Volkswagen concern, but also to any other automaker.
As for VW, I hope they will come up with a solution soon. They have already taken part in the development of technical regulations for engines, and now it remains to take the last step. “
