Honda F1 return, or how to start a rumor ...

During recent weeks, the German press has inflamed as a result of a rumor that Honda makes his return to Formula 1 next two years, with his old partner McLaren. The truth appears somewhat different ...

According to our information, a technical team from Honda is working on a roughing engine F1 for 2014, while the new V6 turbo engines will be in force. But the project has not progressed to the point of the request for approval by the Board of Directors and the Japanese manufacturing leaders McLaren Mercedes under contract at this time, of course, have denied any contact.

We can therefore ask whether, behind all this, there was simply not intend to start a rumor and see how far it could spread, or forcing Honda unveil plans because it is obvious that Japanese manufacturers back gradually in series of motorsport they had deserted during the economiaue crisis in late 2008. thinking here is a Toyota, back in the 24 Hours of Le Mans next year, or Nissan has, very present in 2011 World Championship of GT cars. Honda is going to come back one day, but it is still too early to say that it will be in F1 ...

It is true however that it would be a bit ironic Honda succession to Mercedes McLaren in 2014 when, in late 2008, when the Japanese sold (for a symbolic dollar) their team was Ross Brawn, it has made the stable world champion the following year with the assistance of ... Mercedes!

Also recall that the McLaren-Honda team had won the F1 world titles with Ayrton Senna in 1988, 90 and 91, and with Alain Prost in 1989.
