Honda against proposed engine regulations

While the FIA decide whether or not to enforce a regulation that will make F1 manufactures obliged to offer deals to teams without an engine, McLaren-Honda have voiced the concern about the proposition.

At the moment, Renault, Ferrari and Mercedes are the only teams that have supplied engines to other teams this season.

Honda boss Yusuke Hasegawa revealed that it would be a step backwards for their team as they are still getting into the swing of things since their return to their sport.

“We are not happy about that,” he told autosport.com. “We understand we need to supply multiple teams.

“We have to contribute to the F1 society – currently only Ferrari and Mercedes are providing to four teams and we are only one.

“We are not controlled by FIA to select a team so as a regulation point of view, I don’t think it’s a very good thing.

“Our performance isn’t high enough to have more conversations from other teams.”
