GP Week : Issue 201
The much-anticipated return to Formula 1 by Honda could well see on-track testing as early as November this year. In Spain, McLaren’s racing director Eric Boullier confirmed that the team was considering testing a Japanese power unit in the two-day test that takes places after the season finale in Abu Dhabi in November. “We have thought about it,” he said. “Actually we are currently running a Mercedes engine until Abu Dhabi so we will not run anything else. “But we have thought to maybe try the car after wards.” While McLaren’s contract with Mercedes-Benz would certainly forbid the team from testing any other brand of engine until the end of the season anyway, making a public statement about Honda so relatively early in the season is a likely indicator that the progress of development of the new unit is running to, or ahead of, schedule.
