    when you look in to it
    Gasly was racing for a Honda-backed team

    Brendon Hartley's 2018 Ganassi IndyCar deal had Formula 1 proviso

    Chip Ganassi Racing-Honda’s
    Although Dixon’s New Zealand compatriot and Porsche WEC star Brendon Hartley was believed to have a provisional deal with Ganassi, the proviso was based on possible F1 opportunities arising.

    Can't believe Honda are Considering an F1 team again right now. I guess new rules constantly intrigue huge car manufacturers. However their last effort ended badly and the engine supplying hasn't gone well yet.

    STR are supposedly up for sale but I don't know if Honda is ready to come back in as a team.

    The most logical conclusion right now is that Red Bull wants to keep Honda engine development alive in order to have an alternative to Renault. Perhaps Red Bull feels threatened now that there is a factory Renault team again.

    I think this is more that Red Bull no longer has an engine past next season. Neither RBR nor Honda have a choice in the matter if they want to remain in F1.

    Would Honda want to buy a team based in Italy though? I imagine it would make things more complicated than a team based in the UK.
