This is a bit of disappointing news. Volkswagen has decided against entering Formula 1 for the 2014 season. The new VW Motorsport director Jost Capito stated, "I've got my hands full with the WRC right now and we have to focus on that. This is the very much the main motorsport programme for us and the board is watching it very closely. I think that's what we have to deliver."

Well, at least we have an answer but of the major German brands only Mercedes currently fields a team which just seems odd. VW clearly has the money and WRC is fantastic but hardly on the same level as Formula 1. We hope they change their mind in the future or allow a sub-division (Porsche anybody?) to compete.
