While the entire press has suggested that Audi had bought McLaren, the British firm has just told us the opposite. McLaren Group issued a press release denying the takeover by Audi reported earlier by UK media.

It is not by buying McLaren that Audi will arrive in Formula 1. McLaren described the facts reported by our colleagues as "totally inaccurate" , declaring that their strategy has "always involved discussions and collaboration with the partners and suppliers concerned. , including other automakers, however, there has been no change in the ownership structure of the McLaren Group ” .

Yet over the weekend we heard rumors that Audi wanted to buy the McLaren F1 team. The reason imagined? BMW which is preparing its return to motorsport and which would scare the firm with the rings.

Our colleagues from Autocar announced that Audi had bought the entire McLaren group in order to allow the German brand to enter the world of Formula 1, while ensuring the future of the British car manufacturer which is in difficulty. 


This pseudo-buyout was reported by an anonymous source from Autocar. If the rumors were true, it meant that the Volkswagen group, which already owns Audi, would have owned a second brand of supercars, alongside Lamborghini. In short, Audi has yet to react to his rumors , while McLaren said "there has been no change in management" . As a reminder, McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt resigned a few weeks ago after eight years in the post.

One day in F1 anyway?

Although McLaren's F1 team, whose performance has improved dramatically over the past two seasons, seems like the perfect way for Audi to get into Formula 1, it won't be for now.

Nevertheless, we know that the Volkswagen group (with the manufacturers Porsche and Audi) is starting to really take an interest in it. Whether this will ever turn out to be a reality remains to be seen. And let's not forget that even if McLaren denies the facts, an official announcement could very well come in a few days, months, years… or never!
