Fernando Alonso Ferrari took leave of relief to leave the Italian team and new hope for the future in his new project, which as we know is the new covenant of McLaren and Honda.
The team will align the Spanish and Jenson Button, Kevin Magnussen keeping the team as test driver and substitute 2 World Champions. As the Spaniard said at the team presentation, alignment McLaren Honda is one of the strongest grill Formula 1 2015.
McLaren begins a new project after a couple of years pretty bad (no victory, no pole position and only a quick turn around 2013 and 2014), and the partnership with Honda and Alonso signing long term starts again become a championship team project.
There is probably best factors to retry the top of the Formula 1, so we presented a very interesting project that has convinced himself Alonso, advising that no hurry to win. Honda has great both financial and human resources for this project, so we can be optimistic for 2016 and give the year 2015 as the year of development of the car and its components, Or maybe surprise us for good fighting to win races?
The partnership comes after 25, where remounted McLaren Honda engines, when the couple got big hits with drivers like Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost. We'll see if Alonso and Button become the new Senna and Prost Anglo-Japanese team and enjoyed in 2015 with them!
