Report links Ford with F1 turbo era return

Ford badgeSpeed Week has named Ford as a potential candidate to return to Formula 1 after the new V6 trubo engine rules become de rigeur in 2014.

Honda, having pulled out at the end of 2008, has already announced its return with McLaren in 2015, but Toyota and BMW have denied speculation they are also tempted by the sport’s incoming, automobile industry-relevant engine rules.

Speed Week, however, is now mentioning Ford.

Ford bought Sir Jackie Stewart’s team in 1999, rebranding it Jaguar Racing, but pulling out of Formula 1 at the end of 2004.

The Milton Keynes based team was subsequently sold to current champions Red Bull. (GMM)
