Audi have shared a first look at how their brand could be represented in F1 after confirmation of the manufacturer's upcoming entry.

After months of speculation and deliberation, Audi have finally announced that they will become an F1 power unit supplier when the sport's new formula begins in 2026.

Rather than setting up their own team, Audi are instead planning to partner with an existing outfit, although further details are yet to be confirmed.

Fresh from a special press conference with F1 and FIA bosses at the Belgian Grand Prix on Friday, the various parties headed into the Spa-Francorchamps pit lane to reveal a mock-up Audi livery on a 2022-spec car.
