Christian Horner says Honda is "very keen" to supply Red Bull with Formula 1 engines, but the deal is being blocked by McLaren chief Ron Dennis. [..] "Honda are very keen, but unfortunately they have a contractual status that is between them and McLaren that's nothing to do with us. "It's for them to decide amongst themselves what they want to do." While Dennis may have a veto, according to Ecclestone Honda also signed an agreement with the FIA and FOM that as a condition of re-entry into F1 it supplies one team in its first year, two in the second and three in the third, should there be demand. On the subject of Honda's situation with the FIA and FOM, Horner added: "That's a discussion between those parties. I don't know. Ask them. "We are not going to get involved. Bernie and Jean Todt [FIA president] have made their positions clear regarding the situation, so we rely really on them to deal with that." Ferrari recently blocked a request to impose a maximum price a manufacturer could demand from a customer for an engine supply, set at €12million. Horner has suggested in discussions with Dennis, Red Bull was being asked to pay considerably more. "Obviously I'm not going to disclose confidential discussions, but let's just say it [the price requested] was nowhere near Jean Todt's target," said Horner. Suggested to Horner seeing out Red Bull's contract with Renault was now the only option, he replied: "There are not a lot of options. "There may be something else. We'll see." http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/121620 Mi sembra di capire che non gli siano rimaste altre opzioni. Cercheranno l'accordo con Honda convincendo McLaren a suon di soldoni. Secondo me alla fine avranno la fornitura per un solo anno (per tutelare gli interessi McLaren) pagandola un bel po', e nel frattempo cercheranno qualcosa di meglio per il 2017, oppure si ritireranno. Non penso proprio che accetteranno i Ferrari 2015, se non fosse altro che per l'orgoglio di Mateschitz, e con Renault si sono compromessi troppo.
