McLaren and Honda are looking for new ways in order to broaden their F1 affiliation into road vehicles.
This declaration has been made by McLaren Formula One head Martin Whitmarsh.
Earlier 2013, auto giant Honda declared that it would come back to Formula One as an engine provider to McLaren Racing in the year 2015.
The two firms enjoyed a successful affiliation in Formula One between the years 1988 and 1992, bagging 4 drivers’ contests and 4 constructors’ prizes during that period of time.
Martin delineated the novel agreement as a “multi-year” one, and his remarks hint that there is possibility for a much richer collaboration, which could stretch into McLaren’s automotive section.
“It’s a clean F1 deal, however we have already been looking at automotive technology and we are apportioning that in an open way,” stated Whitmarsh.
Martin added the outcomes of any Honda participation in the upcoming McLaren road vehicles wouldn’t be witnessed for some years. The firm is presently functioning on the 3rd model in its modern-day range, the Porsche 911-?opposing P13. However, Honda has not had any contribution into that vehicle.
“If you take a look at our product assortment, 12C is flowing and will run for some more time. P1 has just been rolled out and P13, which is the follow-up vehicle, is moderately formulated, so really it is something, which you would witness in the coming time,” he added.
