After months of speculation, McLaren and Honda have announced a new technology partnership to begin in 2015. In the late 80s, McLaren and Honda formed one of the most successful alliances in Formula 1 history – winning 15 of 16 Grands Prix in 1988. For the 2015 season, Honda will supply McLaren with engines and energy recovery systems, taking the place of current supplier Mercedes. New engine manufacturers entering Formula 1 is always a good thing for the sport and should keep things interesting for years to come.
