    Considering that F1 is seriously struggling this season all-in-all (teams leaving, teams in financial distress, the implosion of European GPs, Mercedes-Hamilton dominance, etc) while the WEC is on a serious rise (far more interesting technology competition, lots of wheel-to-wheel racing between the three factory LMP1 teams, which will be joined by the front engine, front wheel drive Nissan LMP1 in Le Mans), I think Audi would have to be fools to leave LMP1 any time soon. But one innovative thing Audi could do, is to switch their LMP1 car architecture from diesel-electric to 1.6L turbo petrol hybrid, and then provide the same engine in F1 competition, perhaps to customer teams. That could be interesting.

    Lamborghini just doesn't have the numbers for it to matter for VAG.

    Porsche with Audi as engine supplier?

    Until Bernie dies you will not see anyone new in F1.
