Swiss newspaper Blick has brought the first public rumor out that Honda might ditch McLaren in favor of Williams.
We have been discussing this already for some time now, but the first news article has been written about this, so lets see how this gets momentum.

Google translate it yourself.

If true, a very very risky move if you ask me. We do not and will not have an Alonso-type driver who wrings performance out of the car that should not be there......

I would say sign the deal now. We are never going to win with our current budget unless a budget cap is introduced, so we have nothing to lose. And Honda can only improve specially when new more simple engines are introduced.

You know, If McLaren breaks with Honda, Williams is the logic option. It is so easy for journalists

surely it's a logical move if they can get a works deal.
Hope there's a truth in it.

Whether it's good or not, you can't fight for titles without money.and Stroll's money is not enough for it.

Interesting comparaion, in last 4 yrs Williams has wrecked Mclaren by results.
Now imagine They switch to Mercedes and we stay with Merc too.which one do you think Alonso finishes with? My bet is on Mclaren.
Honda money destroyed their results but let them have a chasis which is atleast as good as ours.
The finishing product is they are credited to be more dangerous with a capable engine and top drivers still prefer them to have a chance for title.it's all product of Honda money imho.

I prefer Honda not giving us a good engine in 1-2 years but give us enough money to make Paddy and DeBeer make a great chasis.by then we can attract highly rated drivers and more technical men by an engine switch.staying with current resources takes a miracle to send us in title fight for titles.

It's probably a long term move for the simpler 2020 engines if at all. Mind you, there is nothing reputable about this at all. It's not even a paddock rumour as yet.

I do get that sense as well Mike. But once these articles are posted, there are bound to be some reactions to it on the paddock. And by those reactions, you can read between the lines at times.
So I wonder if this rumor gets momentum at Baku this weekend.

Without revealing sources.. a well informed source has said that there is more than just a rumor. The have actually been preliminary talks between Honda and Williams.

We have had 12 years without a factory deal! 12 years of non holistic packages, 12 years without linked sponsorship deals to manufacturers, 12 years without the money for wholesale investment, or top 5 drivers.

In that time, 1 win, two poles.

It's a no brainier to go for a works deal!

Honda must come good, they have reputation all management to consider, as does F1.

I bet canon come back if we become Williams Honda

Williams is denying any talks with Honda. So Blick is making progress with their rumour.

I suppose it's confirmed Mercedes is willing to offer a strong competitor like McLaren the same engine?

Of course. We already can't beat Force India or STR with a bigger budget.

So, hey, how about we get a very much worse engine. And someone probably worse than Nakajima to drive alongside Stroll.

Sooooh brilliant!!!

Or were you talking about Prince Brainier of Monaco?

Soon or later Honda will make a good engine. And always is good to partner with a company like Honda. Also for WAE.

The fact is with the better engine of the grid we only can fight with FI and STR...so, why not? Maybe with his money and the right people (Paddy) we can make a very good car...
