BBC: Honda set to return to F1 in 2015

There have been rumors circulating for several months concerning a potential return to F1 for Honda, and now the BBC is reporting that Honda will supply 1.5L Turbocharged V6 engines to McLaren as soon as the 2015 season. This would time well with the upcoming release of the next generation NSX, which is also expected to be powered by a turbocharged V6 (along with hybrid SH-AWD).

McLaren are to use Honda engines as the Japanese company returns to Formula 1 for the first time since 2008.

Honda pulled out of F1 after years of poor results with its own team, which subsequently won the championship as Brawn in 2009 and is now Mercedes.

But the engine manufacturer has decided to return because of next year's introduction of turbo engines featuring energy recovery technology.

McLaren are first expected to race with Honda engines in 2015.
