Andreas Roos insisted:

“We are definitely not interested in Formula 1 at the moment.”

“We need to be realistic,”

he told motorsport-total.com.

“In order to participate in Formula 1, you need to invest a lot of money.

“And before you get a return, you need to be successful for a long time. For now, we are satisfied with the large set of projects that we are engaged in.

“We are already immersed in electrification and the transition to new energy, and Le Mans is perfect for this. We do not need to wait for Formula 1 to go in this direction in 2026,”

Roos added.

Alfa Romeo – Haas partnership?

Meanwhile, Audi is rumored to announce an official collaboration with Sauber by the end of this week. Reports indicate towards a possible 75% buyout for 2026 and beyond.

Nevertheless, rumors indicate towards a possible Haas-Alfa Romeo link-up following this.

“I am completely open to everything,”

“There is absolutely nothing that is definite for 2024,”

he added.

“Today, I am focused on 2022 and 2023 and in the coming months we will be ready to study the options for 2024, 2025 and 2026.

“What is very clear is that we will never be with any other engine other than Ferrari if we do stay in Formula 1.”
