Porsche IPO


Red Bull: Porsche Got “Ahead of Themselves” Over 50% Stake

Red Bull boss Christian Horner says Porsche got “a little bit ahead of themselves” with talk of buying a 50% stake in the Formula 1 organisation, following the collapse of their negotiations.

Porsche announced on Friday morning ahead of the Italian Grand Prix weekend that its discussions with Red Bull about a partnership for the 2026 season had come to an end.
