He also ruled out possibility deal with Red Bull to replace Renault. Stadler previously said that Audi looks his options to enter in the Formula 1, but not in this moment.
So, Audi will will likely continue to race sports car prototypes in the World Endurance Championship in which have a lot of success and seeks for the new victory at 24 hours of Le Mans race next month.
Red Bull team now must seek for some new solutions if they want to stay in Formula 1. Same stands for the competition which desperately needs some fresh blood in the time when some rule changes are already announced.
