The American car manufacturer declared through its boss that it is interested in entering F1 only in cooperation with Michael Andretti’s team.
Although Andretti was given the green light by the FIA in early October to expand the F1 starting grid to 2025 at the earliest, the American team has still not reached an agreement with FOM (Formula One Management), which has all marketing rights under the thumb of the queen of motorsport.
It is already clear that the agreement with FOM will not be easy, as a number of current F1 teams are also against the expansion of the number of participants.
The main partner of Michael Andretti’s team in its attempt to enter F1 is the American car company GM, which is going to use its Cadillac brand for this purpose.
In connection with GM, speculation began in the paddock as to whether the American car manufacturer would be interested in being involved in Formula 1 even if Andretti’s efforts were unsuccessful. However, the GM boss has now ruled that out.
“GM is committed to working with Andretti in F1 racing,” company president Mark Reuss told the AP.
“The Andretti-Cadillac partnership brings together two unique entities created for racing, both with a long tradition of success in motorsport around the world,” explained Reuss, whose words indicate that GM will not be partnering with anyone else from Formula 1.
