FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem has claimed the presence of
Andretti and General Motors will “bolster the long-term
sustainability” of F1. American outfit Andretti took another vital
step towards the F1 grid as partner GM, which has put forward the
Cadillac brand to feature in the prospective team name, announced
it has registered with the FIA to become the sport’s seventh power
unit supplier from the 2028 season. The move has played against a
major sticking point for the entry bid against F1 and the incumbent
teams, who have expressed concerns over the value Andretti Cadillac
Racing could bring to the sport. Ben Sulayem ‘delighted’ with news
Ben Sulayem has been forthright in his support for Andretti’s F1
entry despite initial – and subsequent – pushback from FOM and the
teams and reacting to GM’s announcement, he wrote: “Delighted with
the news that General Motors have registered as a power unit
supplier for the FIA Formula 1 World Championship. “This is a
further endorsement of the FIA’s PU regulations. “It also follows
the approval of Andretti Formula Racing’s Expression of Interest
application. “The presence of iconic American brands Andretti and
GM bolsters the long-term sustainability of the sport.” View this
