There are rumors circulating that McLaren has approached Honda for F1 engines for the 2014 and onwards F1 seasons. Since Mercedes have their own team now, I would understand McLaren's reticence in signing with them again; and Renault and Ferrari are obviously out of the question.
Now I'm not sure if Honda will even be competitive for 2014. I'm sure Renault/Mercedes/Ferrari have already commenced work on the 2014 units. If these rumors are true, would it hearken back to McLaren's glory days of the 80's, or more akin to Honda's recent performance and ignominious departure from F1?
