McLaren deny latest rumour about Formula 1 engine link-up with PURE. McLaren’s latest rumours about that it could choose to alter engine partners when F1 switches to V6-turbo power-units from 2014 season. End of last season McLaren said the team fully focused on ensuring future success with Mercedes-Benz. McLaren has made it clear, however, that there were no discussions with Pure – and suggested that the option was not going to be pursued.

“McLaren has had absolutely no contact with PURE for many months,” said a McLaren spokesman. “Moreover, the contact we did have with PURE, many months ago, was of an entirely informal nature, and was merely a courtesy gesture.”

Last season, McLaren’s Managing Director Jonathan Neale had to dismiss reports that the outfit was trying to lure Honda back into F1.

“That is all wide of the mark,” said Neale about the Honda speculation. “We are very happy with and enjoying our partnership with Mercedes-Benz. We are not quite sure where that story came from in truth. But I can stop the rumour and say that we are entirely focused on our Mercedes-Benz relationship. It is a long one spanning many wins and championships and long may it continue.”
