The engine will be rebadged as a Timex.
The McLaren will continue to be shite.
Big question - what will Ricciardo do?
Indeed. To where? He doesn't seem to have a lot of options. I imagine he will
stay, but rather terrified of the thought of a Honda PU in the car.
It looks like RB have resigned themselves to a couple of seasons (at least)
of rather meagre points tallies; they seem to imply that they recognise that
further development is still required on the engine.
Out of the frying pan and into the fire?
The Bullies will make more money out of Honda that McLaren did - no
superstar wages to pay. If the Honda is crap, not a problem as the
contract is only for 2 years - gives them time to get involved in a new
2021 engine design with Cosworth/Aston Martin. One option will have to
work, 'cos they ain't getting a Ferrari, Mercedes or Renault engine any
time soon, or ever.
RB must believe their chassis will put them ahead of many other teams,
even with a duff motor.
