McLaren have no regrets about split from engine partner Honda, says chairman

McLaren have no regrets about split from engine partner Honda, says chairman

The chairman of the McLaren Group says he has no regrets about the decision to split from engine partner Honda before the 2018 season.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa of Bahrain admitted it was “an expensive decision” but added: “It was in the long-term interests of the company.”

McLaren have just finished the worst season in their history.

Honda switched to Red Bull’s Toro Rosso junior team and next year will supply Red Bull, who won four races in 2018.

Red Bull, who this year used the same Renault engine as McLaren, have data on both power-units.

They believe the Honda engine ended the season with more performance than the Renault and are hopeful of a step up in competitiveness for 2019 which will allow them to challenge world champions Mercedes and Ferrari more closely.
