Re: Time to move to Honda?

If we want to win a world championship again - in fact win races again on a consistent basis - we need a works deal. Mclaren knew that, that is why they went with Honda, it just massively backfired - but actually - if we joined up with Honda now it could work even more in our favour.

Mclaren go with Renault - it's a weaker engine and they won't be a works team so they'll play second fiddle to Renault and probably Red Bull as well. Honda will also really want to prove a point as well if they get dumped by Mclaren and hopefully would help invest in the facilities at Grove or give the backing like BMW did.

At best we'll be battling for third with Red Bull if we stick with Merc - for the simple reason as already pointed out - we're down in the food chain on latest spec engines, we don't have a works budget and if Renault pick up the game on the engine side we have another fully funded works team to fight. Worse than that TR may become a semi works team making the midfield battle even harder.
