Andretti Global and Cadillac on behalf of General Motors have announced that they will partner up to purse an entry to compete in Formula 1! The Andretti Cadillac team would be based in the US with a support centre in the U.K. Both brands are keen to further establish their motorsport pedigrees and expand their reach across the globe.
Formula 1 has seen a massive upswing in popularity in the United States with 2023 seeing three Grand Prix hosted across Austin, Miami and Las Vegas. The Andretti Cadillac team will submit an Expression of Interest as soon the FIA opens the process this year and then will look to compete as soon as possible. Having at least one American driver is also a goal for the team.
General Motors and Andretti last competed together in 2012 for Chevrolet’s return to the NTT Indycar Series. With nine wins across two seasons, the team received Driver, Team and Manufacturer titles in 2012.
