McLaren issued a statement today that Honda have no intention to buy into the Woking based outfit amid media reports that the Japanese manufacturer was set to buy into the team ahead of their return to Formula One next season as a engine supplier to McLaren. The statement said:
'Contrary to recent media reports, Honda has informed us that it has no intention to buy into McLaren'.
Honda return to Formula One next season for the first time since they sold their 'works' team at the end of the 2008 Formula One season following their decision to pull out of Formula One and although they will not be buying into the team, McLaren will be Honda's only customer for 2015 however the Japanese company have not ruled out the possibility of supplying more then one team in the future.
