That’s based on F1 CEO Chase Carey, who says F1’s in the pipeline rules overhaul, off and on the trail, is bringing new parties into the table.

We do not know which teams Carey has spoken to. Nevertheless, as this list shows, there are many serious candidates we believe have the capacity to join the F1 — and logical reasons to achieve this.

Rumours have swirled to a possible Audi F1 programme for quite a while, however its commitment to FormulaE and ongoing DTM effort suggests a manufacturer that’s perfectly happy having its work out grand prix racing.

Nevertheless, the imminent arrival of Porsche into F-E revives an outdated internal Volkswagen Group struggle in precisely the identical championship.

F 1’s hybrid technology would be a totally valid means to farther Audi’s increase beyond internal combustion engine technology, while separating the VW Group’s brands and maximising return on investment by not fighting for the identical space.

Audi driver and 2016/17 F-E winner Lucas di Grassi went as far as saying the German manufacturer gets much more from the electric single-seater string than it would F1, however, F1’s reach is inevitably greater than FE’s.

The e tron moniker that adorns Audi’s F-E cars and has been given to its R-18 LMP1 machines out of 2012 links the motorsport efforts to Audi’s category of electric and hybrid street cars.

Promoting that new by means of a hybrid F1 job could have some potent commercial value, as well as technological value.

For F1, the benefit is clear: it would bring an absolute power house into the grid for the first time.

The argument for Prema on merit alone is just a simple one to make. It’s a phenomenal junior single-seater listing also it deserves to earn a sustainable measure out of’creating F1 drivers’ into’running F1 drivers’.

Prema would almost undoubtedly never make the F1 step without major economic support, but has signaled before it would be interested in a client car entry. And the in coming funding cap and resource restrictions have raised the prospect of B-teams becoming a nailed-on portion of the F1 furniture.

It is logical for bigger teams, that may have the resource to spend however no method of spending it to buddy-up together with another. The principles will be written to use to confine the reciprocal advantages of this kind of romantic partnership, however they’ll never be watertight.

Ferrari and Prema have had a close relationship earlier, and the famed Italian team has ever now passed its junior tie up with all the Charouz Formula 2 team to Alfa Romeo. If Ferrari has around $500m to spend on F1 but can just spend half , why don’t you divert such tools to an official B-team, which Prema could run?

This will provide Prema a platform to perform sustainably in F1 and be able to demonstrate its art at the absolute top level. The undermine for a leg-up to grand prix racing would be a combination of forms, as it would probably never have a much better car than Ferrari. That seems like a price well worth paying.

Merely because SMP sponsored and put in Formula 1 for a season doesn’t indicate it would be able to finance its team. But, SMP additionally includes its own own LMP1 operation, attracting the likes of Jenson Button to induce for it at the World Endurance Championship. Therefore, there’s clearly major finances behind the team, an awareness of how to collect a race team, also some serious pull behindthescenes.

If there was an organisation capable of going a consortium for a full-on Russian F1 entry, it’s SMP. It supports Sirotkin and gets back him into the fold as a book driver, therefore there exists a link to a current F1 team — a person who has no affiliate right now, and is aware of the threat it faces by the ones that do.

SMP is investing heavily in Spartan drivers as well as also the Russian Grand Prix is a major (fairly) recent accession to F1. Without anywhere for those Russian drivers to proceed, the future of both initiatives seems restricted. An F1 crew may look like a drastic way of firming them up at the medium-term, however whether or not it’s going to happen perhaps 2021 gifts the most cost-effective opportunity.

No listing of’team that people want to find out in F1′ will be complete with no American racing association. There is all sorts that qualify as being effective at connecting Haas being an F1 entry from the USA, that have success in IndyCar and NASCAR, including Penske and Ganassi.

But, Andretti is just like the most solid path for F1 to pursue. Chiefly because it’s growing ties using an present ensemble that may do using a buddy for political reasons.

and Andretti have now partnered up for the Indias 500 with and group owners and Michael Andretti work together throw their bets in the Walkinshaw Andretti United Supercars group in Australia. There’s a preexisting relationship there and needs another team if its big opponents aren’t likely to stop operating because manner.

A major team such as Andretti would additionally be a major help with F1’s unwavering drive to boost its appeal in america. Oh, and there exists a readymade, quality American driver in its own positions already in Alexander Rossi.

Still another significant manufacturer to finish the list, and the one that is already significantly associated with F1 through its Red Bull tie up. Together with Red Bull today, most importantly, married to for its short-term long run, there is scope for Aston to look elsewhere to construct its own profile in a grand prix racing context.

has made lots of noise about connecting the F1 grid, chiefly like a prospective engine manufacturer. Nevertheless, the complex F1 engine rules — and Aston’s limited experience in this field — will earn a race team a whole lot more thoughtful, with the right cost restrictions.

It is rather clearly excited to enlarge its motorsport engagement. As well as its important GT operation and F1 participation, it’s been talking future Hypercar World Endurance Championship regulations, lucky a DTM project and replaced since the name sponsor of this Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award, beefing up the bucks prize in the procedure.

Aston would certainly not need to build its own engine for a works team. It might tie up using a different, turned into an third party team, or even look elsewhere. Eventually, this is a major manufacturer with acute racing pedigree, the capacity to combine the grid and, one could assumethat might be shown many options in case it stepped to the negotiating table.
