    McLaren sounds out Mercedes about F1 engine supply

    McLaren has sounded out Mercedes about a supply of customer engines in Formula 1, sources have confirmed, if it concludes that it is best to split with current partner Honda.

    On the back of a difficult pre-season testing programme, with Honda's new engine proving to be unreliable and under-powered, McLaren has been evaluating various options to try to save its campaign.

    While Honda itself is adamant that it can resolve its reliability dramas which will then unlock steps in power, McLaren knows that it cannot afford for the situation to stay as it is.

    There are fears that if Honda does not make steps to improve, then there is a danger that McLaren could be the slowest team on the grid and struggle to finish races.

    That could deliver a huge financial hit in terms of constructors' championship income, as well as limit the potential to attract a much-needed title sponsor for 2018.


    Sh1t, I've gone grey. 309bhp and 630 of those torques.

    Years ago, I would have indeed watched both qually and race live.

    With Lewis a cool 0.5s ahead already, I'll be watching the highlights at 1pm or whenever.

    I'm not even irritated if I see the results before I see the inevitable procession.

    With it being rubbish international week and the 6 Nations over, it does mean I'll end up watching it. Unless it clashes with repeats of Columbo. Columbo is quality.

    Plus Sniper Elite is really quite enjoyable and Mass Effect arrived yesterday....

    Good to see LH still enjoys a hissy fit over Team radio, I fell asleep as soon as VB gave his 3rd place speech on the podium.
