Audi denies rumours of Formula 1 entry

Audi F1 livery by Tim Holmes Design

Recent rumours have suggested Audi is planning to ditch both its dominant Le Mans/WEC program and its DTM participation in favour of a high-profile entry to Formula 1 in 2016. Audi Sport has used its Facebook page to scupper any such talk:

Audi‬ in Formula 1? These rumors keep appearing with regularity since years. It’s pure speculation again this time and without any foundation. We are committed to the FIA WEC, DTM and GT racing. In 2015 we will add the Audi Sport TT Cup to our program

Earlier speculation has linked Fernando Alonso to an Audi F1 entry, largely on the back of Audi signing Stefano Domenicali, former Ferrari Team Principal.

Two things are clear: as long as the sun rises in the morning a rumour about a Volkswgaen Group company entering F1 won’t be far away and that livery above by Tim Holmes Design looks first class!
