In the end, McLaren has successfully terminated the current contract with Honda and has signed an agreement with Renault, which will be the supplier of the team from Woking next year.
“We wanted to give McLaren their engines, but the problem was that the negotiations between the parties dragged on for a long time, said Toto in the comments ESPN. – In addition, we banal lacked manufacturing capabilities in order to provide them with the motors in the 2018 season, and a time for the deal’s gone.”
