An application was submitted to Formula 1 last week by famous American racing family Andretti. The intention is that from 2024 they will enter the fight for the Formula 1 World Championship with their own team. It all happened very quickly, after Mario Andretti stated that his son Michael had applied to Formula 1. There is no response from Michael’s son’s corner yet.
Last year, the American motorsport family began trying to become close to Formula 1. But at the last minute, the deal with Sauber-Alfa Romeo fell through. However, the dream of entering Formula 1 did not die for the American team. After other team bosses took somewhat opposing views on the idea and called on new teams to bring innovation and ideas into the sport as well, Williams boss Joost Capito became more positive. He even seems excited to have another team as a fellow fighter.
“I think it’s a good move to bring Andretti. I worked with Michael in the US at Volkswagen. They ran the rallycross team for Volkswagen for five years, so I worked closely with him,” Capito explained in a media interview, so I worked closely with him. 1, that’s for sure.”
