FIA Launches Applications for Prospective Formula 1 Teams

The Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) has launched an application process to identify prospective teams seeking to participate at a competitive level in the FIA Formula One World Championship.

“For the first time ever, as part of the selection conditions, we are requesting that candidates set out how they would meet the FIA’s sustainability benchmarks and how they would make a positive societal impact through sport,” said FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem. “The process is a logical extension of the positive acceptance of the FIA’s 2026 F1 Power Unit Regulations from engine manufacturers, which has attracted Audi to Formula 1 and created interest among other potential entrants.”

For the first time ever, candidates are required to address how they would manage the sustainability challenge and how it plans to achieve a net-zero CO2 impact by 2030. In addition, prospective F1 teams would also need to illustrate how they intend to achieve a positive societal impact through participation in the sport.

In related news, FIA has confirmed that six manufacturers have registered as Power Unit Suppliers for the 2026–2030 seasons of the FIA Formula One World Championship onwards, including:

  • Alpine Racing
  • Audi
  • Ferrari S.p.A.
  • Honda Racing Corporation
  • Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains Ltd.
  • Red Bull Ford


The six registrants will participate in the FIA Formula One World Championship seasons 2026–2030 under the technical regulations approved by the FIA Formula 1 Commission and World Motor Sport Council in August of this year.
