Andretti will not be part of Formula 1 as of 2026, and surely that is a setback for many fans. In addition, Formula 1 itself also seems to be throwing up its windows when it comes to natural growth in the American market. They would love to put a fourth American GP on the calendar, but for now a real American team will not get the chance to join.
em is sung before every major sporting event, and fans rally behind their favorite teams and athletes with fervor. Having an American team in Formula 1 would tap into this sense of national pride and create a strong fan base. Andretti’s entry into F1 would not only bring in a passionate American audience but also attract new viewers and sponsors to the sport. Furthermore, Andretti has a long-standing reputation for excellence in motorsports, with a history of success in various racing disciplines. Their participation in Formula 1 would bring a rich legacy and credibility to the championship. Despite these factors, the F1 organization seems hesitant to accommodate Andretti’s bid, for reasons that are difficult to confirm. This decision raises questions about the FOM’s vision for expanding the sport globally and tapping into new markets.
