    Honda to power McLaren F1

    After months of rumours, speculation and calling of BS it has finally been announced that McLaren will be ending their partnership with Mercedes-Benz as engine supplier to thier F1 cars with Honda to supply the new breed of 1.6L turbo charged engines that will come into effect with the 2015 season rule changes.

    Also speculation that Honda could power a small McLaren road car to compete with the Boxter but for the moment the big news is the return of McLaren Honda to the F1 grid, the partnership that Ayrton Senna took to such great success with, amoung others, the MP4-4.

    Also along with the new era of engines could see a change of colour to McLaren's cars with rumours speculating that the Mercedes Silver and Rocket Red could be dropped (with Vodafone and Mercedes the two main sponsors no longer involed in the team) in favour of McLaren's own Historic Orange seen on the Can-Am cars that helped make McLaren the race team it is today.
