The image showcases the rear wing of an F1 car, featuring the 'F1' logo on the side plate and Audi's 'four rings' on the top. While Audi is yet to reveal any details, the caption for the image reads, "more rings are coming, watch this space", indicating an official announcement very soon.

Earlier this week, there were reports suggesting Audi could acquire a majority stake in the Sauber F1 team. The German car brand is expected to make the official announcement during the upcoming Belgium Grand Prix, held between August 26th - 28th, 2022. As per these reports, Audi will build the F1 car chassis at the team's facility in Hunwil, while the engine will be developed in Germany.

Adam Baker who was hired for a 'Special tasks' role in late 2021, is expected to become the Managing Director for the new team.

With the amount of money that is flowing in Formula 1 these days, it has become very lucrative business. Since the change in ownership of F1, lot more companies are willing to join. It will be good for Sauber to be overtaken by such a big company, ofcourse the name "Sauber" will be removed.

Don't understand this clearly. They are joining as a PU supplier, then why unveil a concept F1 car?

Also, wonder who will be the customer to their engines. The rumoured Porsche - Sauber team?

Also Mods: Please change title as it is now officially confirmed by F1 and Audi.

Porsche is expected to tie up with Red Bull. Audi is expected to takeover Sauber. Announcement expected later in the year. This coincides with Alfa Romeo announcing withdrawal of sponsorship for Sauber after 2023.

The 4 circuits shown at the end of the video are:

1) Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Spain
2) Silverstone Circuit, UK
3) Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, Brazil
4) Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium

These are among the toughest as well as fastest on the calendar!
