Honda committed to F1, says sport’s CEO
auto racing SINGAPORE
Formula One chief Chase Carey said on Wednesday he was confident that Honda was in F1 for the long haul as reports said McLaren was about to confirm its split with the Japanese engine-maker.
Carey met Honda executives at this month’s Italian Grand Prix and said they seemed excited about the future of Formula One, despite the company’s troubled return to the sport.
McLaren are strongly rumoured to be on the verge of going with Renault engines rather than Honda’s, whose power units have been notoriously unreliable and under-powered.
Reports say the Japanese manufacturer, which returned to F1 in 2015, is about to join forces with Toro Rosso, the secondary team of multiple world champions Red Bull.
