General Motors has insisted it is committed to Andretti Global’s F1
entry bid and dismissed suggestions it could partner with an
existing team instead. The American brand partnered with Michael
Andretti’s prospective entry to form Andretti Cadillac Racing after
fears from F1’s incumbent teams that Andretti Global failed to
bring the value needed to join the grid. ACR has since passed the
first two phases of the FIA’s entry process after the governing
body launched an Expressions of Interest before the current
campaign. It was the only team to pass to the final stage, where it
now faces commercial discussions with Formula One Management [FOM]
to determine whether the entry will be accepted. GM committed to
Andretti With opposition to the entry persistent from the current
10 teams, a number backed the addition of GM alone to the sport,
with Williams Team Principal James Vowles recently explaining he
would welcome the brand to his team. Asked whether changing
allegiance was a possibility, GM President Mark Reuss told AP : “GM
is committed to partnering with Andretti to race in F1. “The
collaboration between Andretti-Cadillac brings together two unique
entities built for racing, both with long pedigrees of success in
motorsport globally.”
