Thats a big boost for all VAG motorsport entries, including Audi!

Note that it says "Porsche is investing around 150 million euro in this respect"
VAG will draw some benefit (especially with regards to road cars - as Porsche is responsible for all VAG sports car platforms), but it is primarily a Porsche investment and facility.

And if that doesnt happen, then we can speculate about Porsche Joining F1 in 2022, and if that doesnt happen then 2030. Also, if Porsche never joins F1 then we can constantly speculate about Audi joining F1 with Williams, Red Bull, Colin Kolles or Count Chocula.

You might as well include Franken Berry in the mix, as you've got Count Chocula.

What, you arent taking my comment seriously????? Like another internet racing “expert” my “sources” and my own speculation have helped me predict how Audi is going to leave Le Mans sports car racing for the 900th time. Count Chocula will join HRT, and because of his long relationship with Audi (seen with someone who knew someone who knows Dr Ullrich in 1987) will bring Audi to F1, despite Ullrich calling F1 irrelevant. Red Bull is apparently going to dump their own team and bring sponsorship to HRT Audi. Also, Porsche going to Le Mans means nothing, because with Franken Berry, as you mentioned, Porsche will be headed to NASCAR in 2017. This is what my sources tell me, so it must be true.

This guy belongs in Hollywood. I bet you could write a better screenplay than 90% of those so-called writers out there.

You have got that whole Bermuda triangle thing going.

George Lucas said, when the BBC trawled him round the Montreal pits, sports and movie's don't really work but these scenarios, of FordCosworthPanoz are winners in my book; keep it up.

Thanks, but to be honest, Im making fun of reality. My “rumours” that I just mentioned are no more ridiculous than a lot of the rubbish people actually follow on the internet and post on this very forum. Whether it be from an overreactive magazine or a blog that has the prediction success rate of Harold Camping. Sure, its really fun to speculate, but when year after year after year after year people predict the same damn thing (and are always wrong), it just gets pathetic after a while. Especially when the people that actually are involved in these happenings (Newey, Ullrich ect) have denied it.

But yes, I am looking forward to the 2014, 2018, 2022 and whenever the heck after that F1 grid and seeing no Audi or Porsche team on it.

Audi Racer has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
People can talk can't they....Of course Peugeot is gonna throw that idea out there.....To psych the competition.....Now Audi is stuck wondering if Peugeot will stay diesel or go petrol....its only mind games.

Apparently he is going to buy the ALMS from Don Panoz, but because he is Brian France's twin brother, he will shut the series down and all sports car racing is DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED.
