Team and driver changes

  • Honda will return to Formula One as an engine supplier, providing McLaren with a V6 engine and Energy Recovery System package, ending the team's 20-year partnership with Mercedes-Benz. [13] Honda had previously supplied McLaren from 1988 until 1992, when Honda ended their engine supply program.

In addition to the arrangement with McLaren, Honda have publicised their willingness to supply additional customer teams.[5]
