    Honda returning to F1 as McLaren engine partner in 2015

    I suppose more manufacturers are adding turbo engines and energy recovery systems to their road cars and it makes sense to use F1 to help develop that technology. So is Mercedes going to develop a turbo engine in 2014 for the McLaren, and then look for other partners for 2015+?

    -----------------

    Honda will return to Formula One in 2015 as McLaren engine partners, replacing Mercedes, sources close to the company said on Wednesday.

    Honda's Chief Executive Takanobu Ito is set to make an official announcement as early as Thursday, one of the sources added.

    Considering the history of Honda powered McLaren cars, this sounds like a very positive move. Mercedes will still have their own team plus Force India and possible others to sell engines to.

    Honda is probably just dusting off the tooling and blueprints from the old turbo v6  Smiley


    Re: Honda returning to F1 as McLaren engine partner in 2015

    The old bi-turbo 1.5 litre V6 has nothing to do with the new 1.6 litre single turbo V6 with ERS.

    If McLaren will be able to make a right chassis - that team will be one to beat. Honda are great in this type of engines.
