After it was announced the termination of the contract McLaren-Honda at the end of season 2017, the Japanese manufacturer said that the strategy of work with the British team will change.
“First, we want minimum modification of the engine to get the maximum results before the end of the year [avoiding additional penalties on the starting field], – leads words of the head of Motorsport division, Honda Yusuke Hasegawa. – Previously, we have prioritized the improvement of pace, because our cooperation was to continue into 2018.
But next year we’re not going to work with Stoffel [Vendorname] and Fernando [Alonso], and it means that Honda will focus on the results of McLaren in 2017.
I want the team scored maximum points this year. As for the final engine upgrade, then there’s six races. We will present the new engine in Malaysia, Japan or the United States.”
