These last few weeks have seen numerous reports come out stating that Audi will buy 75% of Sauber the team that currently owns the Alfa Romeo Formula One team. This would mean that the German company would have their own team, car and drivers to play around with.

Audi Sport’s facility in Neuburg will be where the power unit is developed, marking the first time in more than a decade that F1 powertrain will be built in Germany.

This announcement was revealed earlier today in a press conference in Spa, ahead of this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix. The press conference featured Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG Markus Duesmann, Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development Oliver Hoffmann, F1 President and CEO Stefano Domenicali and FIA President Mohammed Ben Sulayem.

The combination of high performance and competition is always a driver of innovation and technology transfer in our industry. With the new rules, now is the right time for us to get involved. After all, Formula 1 and Audi both pursue clear sustainability goals.”

The company also announced that by the end of the year they will announce which team or teams they will partner up with ahead of the 2026 season.

The Serbian side maintained their goal advantage after previously beating the Spartans 4-1 during the first leg. Despite this, the Maltese side’s showing in both legs is something which supporters can be proud of, creating endless goal opportunities and spectacular moments.

This year’s run was definitely one for Maltese football historic books and will hopefully serve as a moment of encouragement for fellow Maltese teams as they strive to climb the European football ladder.

Following the game, the Spartans took to Facebook to celebrate the team’s showing, expressing pride in their showing, both on and off the pitch.

This evening, Malta’s very own Hamrun Spartans are set to face Serbian side FK Partizan in the second leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League play-offs.

The strong Serbian team secured a 4-1 against Malta’s representatives in their first leg last week, with Matthew Guillaumier scoring one goal during the game.

FK Partizan’s three-goal advantage means that Hamrun will have to come out guns blazing to level the playing field and hopefully secure an advantage. Partizan defender Sinisa Sanicanin stated that despite their 4-1 win, they must remain cautious and alert in order to make sure they go on to the group stages.

Meanwhile, the Spartans are calling on their supporters to be their 12th player on join them as they ‘fight till the end’.
