General Motors has made a milestone announcement in the motorsports world, confirming its entry into the high-stakes world of Formula 1 as a power unit manufacturer. Starting in the 2028 season, GM will supply the power units for the Andretti Cadillac F1 team, marking a significant achievement for both companies’ racing histories. This development follows the FIA’s approval of Andretti’s application to compete in the FIA Formula One World Championship. GM President Mark Reuss expressed enthusiasm about the new venture, highlighting GM’s extensive engineering and racing expertise. The collaboration aims to position Andretti Cadillac as a competitive works team in the elite racing series. This move aligns with GM’s commitment to innovation, particularly in areas such as electrification, hybrid technology, sustainable fuels, and advanced internal combustion engines.
