McLaren Says Honda Not Interested In Buying Stake In The Team

McLaren has dismissed suggestions Honda is "poised to purchase a stake in the team," according to Ian Parkes of the PA. After what will be a seven-year absence come next season, Honda returns to F1 next year "as power-unit suppliers to McLaren after signing a long-term deal with the Woking-based marque." With Honda's return, it "has led to suggestions they will also take a stake in McLaren, who are again struggling on track this season." But a McLaren spokesperson said, "Contrary to recent media reports, Honda has informed us it has no intention to buy into McLaren" (PA, 5/29).
