Sports Car Brand Porsche Denies Rumors Of Possible F1 Comeback
Volkswagen-owned sports car brand Porsche is reportedly working on an F1 comeback but "when asked about the rumors, Porsche did not want to confirm them," according to MOTORSPORT-TOTAL.com. Porsche spokesperson Oliver Hilger said, "Those are pure speculations, we currently don't have any ambitions to return to F1. Our intention to race at Le Mans and in the World Endurance Championship hasn't changed. That's what we are getting ready for." Porsche's recent hires of specialized personnel with F1 background "do not indicate any comeback plans." Hilger said, "We need new personnel from motorsports' top racing series for our racing plans.
