With the FIA opening up a selection process to find a 12th team, the Volkaswagen Group has signalled that it has no interest in joining the Formula 1 grid.

It's often rumoured that VW, or one of its brands - which include Audi, Porsche, Bugatti, Seat, Skoda, Lamborghini and Bentley - will enter the sport at some point, but a spokesperson confirmed to ESPN that they currently have no plans to do so.

"Currently there are no plans or intentions for the Volkswagen brand or any other brand of the Volkswagen Group to join Formula One."

Any interested parties must submit an expression of interest by January 3rd, before a final decision is made on February 28th.
