We discuss Formula 1’s next big controversy in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Scott Mitchell and Mark Hughes join Edd Straw to explain why the possible arrival of both Porsche and Audi in F1 in 2026 is causing a political row about the new engine regulations.

We detail the current state of the two brands’ plans to come into F1, with Porsche set to ally itself with Red Bull and Audi potentially planning to buy into a team.

But with the question of concessions and costs the major flashpoint, we outline what the newcomers want, what the existing manufacturers don’t want, and why the definition of what constitutes a new manufacturer is not as simple as it might seem.

We also discuss the possibility of the Monaco Grand Prix losing at least its annual place on the F1 calendar, and look ahead to the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola.
