The recently announced McLaren-Honda Formula 1 partnership could extend to road cars Martin Whitmarsh says.
â€œItâ€™s a pure Formula 1 contract, but weâ€™ve already been looking at automotive technology and weâ€™re sharing that very openly,â€ said McLaren’s Team Principal at the Hungarian Grand Prix. â€œOur road car strategy at the moment has no other automotive partner and â€¨Honda would be a good place â€¨to collaborate.â€
If any such deal was to transpire the shared benefits between the two car companies would not be seen for some time. â€œIf you look at our product range, 12C is running and will run for a few more years,” added Whitmarsh. “P1 has just been launched and P13, which is the follow-up car, is relatively developed, so actually it is something that you would see in quite a few years to come.”
