With the arrival of Stefano Domenicali, the former head of the team Ferrari F1 Lamborghini the rumors about if the Italian company was preparing its assault on this competition was not long in arriving. Domenicali came to the mark of the wild bull to fill the post left free Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini until they decided to move to Audi Quattro GmbH. But none of that, as has been commented by the protagonists themselves Lamborghini has no plans to enter the Formula 1. At least, for the time being.
AutoWeek is the one who picks up these reports. Stefano Domenicali and has not come to Lamborghini to prepare for the assault on Formula 1. That is not the priority at this time. Although, the Volkswagen group had flirted with the possibility of Audi entering Formula 1, although all remained in the background when they uncovered the scandal of the dieselgate. The output of Stephan Winkelmann, forced the company to seek a good substitute for that expense, so we chose to Domenicali.
As you well point out, this does not mean that short-term Lamborghini in the Formula 1. The own Stefano Domenicali said that “you can’t think of a brand like Lamborghini without racing”, although not in these moments a priority for the brand. Currently the firm is working on the next todocamino of the brand, the Uru, which give way to its production in a few months. The brand prepares for the arrival of this new model, expanding its production capacity to cope with the demand.
on the other hand Lamborghini continues to offer special editions of their Aventador, and its Hurricane. Reasons for the declines in these times the idea of Lamborghini in the Formula 1. Everything will be a matter of time.
