Initial contact made over possible McLaren-Honda F1 reunion - The Race (the-race.com)
Looks like we may have an answer
the article is very interesting.
It would make a Honda’s North Pole to succeed with McLaren given the previous project, or else, …
The article Also elaborates that Zak Brown has visited Red Bull technology powertrain company for a possible customer deal. If it were for Setting up it’s own power train company, It would’ve made me astonished.
But now that many car companies, I mean big car building companies, joining the teams as collaborator or intellectual partnership partner, this pass might not be so bad for McLaren, me thinks as layman in this racing motor business. It will keep the stability of the team and it will open the joint business platform for many companies and teams can make much more direct decisions on how to proceed. Kicking off by Purchasing JUDD ????
For Honda, this pass might be interesting. If All what it want is IP business but no construction of the top end PU. Or, It might even give a glimpse of fresh knowledge.
By all means, if mass production road car business moves toward the E-car, The prestigious Sports Car company such as a Ferrari or McLaren, … they would want to have its own ICU. It might be even the criteria for their survival in this business. Like Swiss handmade watch versus smart watch.
