Andretti Global Open F1 Shop at Silverstone
« on: April 11, 2024, 05:37:05 PM »
Looks like the Andrettis aren't taking no for an answer.

Andretti Global has opened its F1 facility at Silverstone. It will work with the principal Andretti site in Indianapolis and the team's Formula E facility in Banbury.

I love the strategy:  embarrass F1 into making them accept Andretti

Next step should be running tests at F1 tracks with their car to show they're competitive.

Of course, things get complicated, since they've been accepted by FIA, are there rules they need to follow even though they're not part of Formula One?

They did state that the rules currently do not apply to them they were referencing the budget cap which means they can spend what they like to get up to speed with machinery and design.

If Andretti is not entering in 2025 or 2026, no regulation can be applied to them. This is because an entry cannot be deferred more than once, and Andretti's had 2025 as the initial possible year. One reason Liberty's claim was ridiculous is because the Year 1 expected/Year 2 deferred is the standard way for FIA acceptances to be processed. Liberty basically told the FIA it wasn't allowed to let any new team into F1 on the last year of a regulation ruleset, which exceeds its range of competence.
