Audi plays down latest F1 rumours
Audi has ruled out racing in formula one, at least in the short term.
Rumours Audi might be contemplating a foray were re-fired last week, when the Volkswagen brand was represented by Stefano Domenicali at the F1 engine meeting.
But Audi's motor racing chief Dieter Gass has now moved to calm the speculation.
"Formula one is basically interesting and still the top class of motor sport," he told Germany's Sport Bild.
"But if you look at motor sport as a whole, there are currently no series except Formula E and DTM in which Audi must be represented," Gass added.
