The premier motor sporting event, Formula 1 has developed a collaboration with the US automotive firm, General Motors (GM).
Following this deal, the brand will work as a power unit supplier for the highest class of international racing.
Commencing with the 2028 season, the American multinational automotive manufacturing company will be supplying power units, which include the engine, exhaust, turbocharger, and other critical components, to F1 teams that wish to use them.
GM participation is closely related to the maker’s brand Cadillac, a division of the American automobile manufacturer that designs and builds luxury vehicles, proposing a spot on the F1 grid as its 11th team as part of the Andretti Cadillac F1 Team participation.
If Andretti Autosport were to become a part of the series, it would most likely do so in 2025 or 2026; however, GM would not be allowed to join until 2028. This would imply that Andretti would not be able to develop power units internally for the first two seasons of the series.
For the 2026 season, new power unit rules will be open to the public. These restrictions have the potential to upend the sport’s current hierarchy; therefore, Andretti could have to tie its new entry to a total unknown at first.
