- Volkswagen is continuing its involvement in Formula Student Germany (FSG) in the next racing season and will once again sponsor selected university teams entering the international design competition.
In future, the company will focus more strongly on the “Driverless” category than has previously been the case in order to bring the innovation areas of electric drive systems and autonomous driving even closer together. At the Hockenheimring, the company also recruits new career entrants. Trainees and interns who were active in Formula Student have repeatedly joined Volkswagen.
“The atmosphere at the Hockenheimring was fantastic,” said Prof. Dr. Stefan Gies, Head of the Mid- and Fullsize Series Group at Volkswagen and FSG Patron. “Each of the teams devoted a great deal of energy, passion and time to its racing car.”
Formula Student Germany is a meeting point for talented young engineers who are thrilled by cars, innovations and teamwork. Volkswagen offers the best graduates a variety of career opportunities.
