McLaren Back Honda To Turn Their Season Around

McLaren Back Honda To Turn Their Season Around

McLaren F1 are not used to being at the bottom of the constructors championship but after an awful start to their season the team are still backing Honda to turn their engine around.

Stoffel Vandoorne and Fernando Alonso find themselves in 19th and 20th places in the Formula One driver's world championship standings after four races.

The team are 10th out of 10 too as neither Vandoorne or Alonso have been able to pick up any points in Australia, China, Bahrain or Russia.

The problem for McLaren, a team more used to winning championships than being last, is their engine which is supplied by Honda.

Three years after coming back into the sport as an engine supplier things haven't been going well for the Japanese company but McLaren team chief Eric Boullier thinks things will get better telling Sky Sports:

"We have to be the best ourselves before we see the global picture. Honda are doing the same and we try to work as hard as possible to make sure we will catch up.

The Belgian and Spaniard had a double 'did not finish' in China and in Sochi Alonso didn't even manage to start the race after his car had problems on the formation lap.

Boullier though rejected the suggestion that McLaren could dump Honda and return to a Mercedes engine next season adding, "No Mercedes in the back of our car."

If Honda don't turn things around then McLaren will be on for probably their worst ever season.
