Formula One News » F1 2013 – McLaren: Honda partnership ensures long term success

McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh insists McLarens partnership with Honda is a formula for long term success.

Speaking during a Vodafone phone-in Whitmarsh said “I think what is very clear is that McLaren needs to be supported and teamed in a full works effort with a major automotive manufacturer,”

“There is a lot of work between 2014 and 2015 for us undeniably, and it will be a tough challenge for the team.

“We’re going to be doing all we can to win races with Mercedes this year and next, but inevitably moving to Honda in 2015 gives us a bedrock of being one of the big teams.

“It ensures that in the long term we have the resources, the correct structure and focus, to be successful.

“Clearly I’d like to win this weekend [at Monaco], and a bit more in the course of this year and next, but we’re a team with 182 grand prix victories, in the long term we know we need to be putting together a programme that provides us with the platform to be successful every year in the foreseeable future.”
