Andretti’s F1 bid given FIA green light as new team one step closer to joining championship

Andretti are one step closer to joining the F1 grid as their bid with General Motors brand Cadillac has been approved by the FIA; but F1’s owners still need to give the green light, so Andretti’s presence on the grid will not be announced yet

Andretti have been given the green light to enter Formula 1 by the FIA, but now await approval from F1’s owners.

In January, the FIA, the sport’s governing body, launched an application process for new teams to seek to join Formula 1 in 2025, 2026 – when new engine regulations take effect – or 2027.

The FIA and Liberty Media-owned Formula 1, who control the sport’s commercial rights, both have a say on the matter.

With the FIA accepting the application, Sky Sports understands that F1’s perspective on the matter will now be purely commercial and financial and they are expected to make their assessment on Andretti’s bid over a number of months.

Formula 1 currently has 10 teams and is limited to a maximum of 12 up to and including the 2025 season by the current Concorde Agreement, the document which binds the sport’s rules and governance together.

Former racing driver Michael Andretti is fronting a bid from his team, which races in other motorsport disciplines, in collaboration with General Motors brand Cadillac.
