McLaren denied Honda engine deal rumors

McLaren managing director Jonathan Neale denied new engine deal with Honda in 2014. A report from Auto Motor und Sport – McLaren was looking a new engine contract with Honda when the new 1.6-litre turbo engine policy come into force in three years’ time. McLaren and Honda take pleasure in an extremely victorious partnership among 1988 and 1992 with four championship title.

“That’s all wide of the mark,” Neale told ESPNF1 through the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes phone-in. “We are wedded to, very happy with and enjoying our partnership with Mercedes-Benz. We’re not quite sure how or where that [news] broke from in truth, but I can stop the rumours and say we are entirely focused on the Mercedes-Benz relationship. We’ve had a long standing relationship with them, with many wins and championships and long may that continue.”

“I don’t think that’s a concern,” he said. “Of course, Mercedes have their own GP team and it’s right and proper that a degree of focus is going to go in that direction, but I was just talking this morning with Thomas Fuhr at Mercedes-Benz – we speak frequently – and we want the same things. It’s in our interest to have consistent engines together because that’s how we get the highest quality.

“Mercedes managed to get six cars [using its engines] in the top ten in qualifying in Abu Dhabi, and they take real pleasure and delight in that and so they should. But of course we like to beat them all as well, so that works for us. We make a healthy technical contribution and they are a formidable technical partner in the engine stakes and we enjoy that relationship.”
