General Motors has announced it has formally registered with the
FIA as a Formula 1 power unit manufacturer from the 2028 season.
The American brand has partnered with the Andretti Global entry
bid, with commercial discussions the final hurdle before Andretti
Cadillac Racing can join the grid as an 11th team. There has been
stiff opposition to the entry from F1’s incumbent teams over the
value the bid can bring to the sport, which means this announcement
marks a large stride in Andretti and GM’s push to overcome the
pushbacks. It means GM will join Red Bull-Ford, Ferrari, Honda,
Mercedes, Alpine-Renault and Audi as power unit suppliers. Deep
engineering and racing expertise “We are thrilled that our new
Andretti Cadillac F1 entry will be powered by a GM power unit,”
said GM President Mark Reuss. “With our deep engineering and racing
expertise, we’re confident we’ll develop a successful power unit
for the series, and position Andretti Cadillac as a true works
team. “We will run with the very best, at the highest levels, with
passion and integrity that will help elevate the sport for race
fans around the world.”
