AndrettiAndretti Global and General Motors Team Up in F1 Pursuit

Andretti Global and General Motors have announced their intent to pursue the opportunity to compete in the FIA Formula One World Championship. GM would be represented by the Cadillac brand. The Andretti Cadillac team would be based in the United States with a support facility in the United Kingdom.

F1 has seen consistent growth globally and most recently in the United States with 2023 races in Austin, Miami and Las Vegas. The Andretti Cadillac team is planning to submit an expression of interest when the FIA opens the formal process. If selected, the team is seeking to compete as soon as practical with at least one American driver.  

Since 2017, Cadillac has been competing at the forefront of American sports-car racing in IMSA, achieving numerous wins, podiums and championships with the Cadillac DPi-V.R. Cadillac will continue in sports-car racing with the all-new hybrid Cadillac V-LMDh, which will compete globally in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and FIA World Endurance Championship.  

Andretti racing teams currently compete in seven different top-tier series worldwide and have found success in each avenue of competition. Andretti and GM last paired for the return of Chevrolet to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES in 2012, together capturing nine wins across two seasons. The pairing additionally claimed the Driver, Team and Manufacturer titles in 2012.
