The surprise winner from McLaren's Honda engine woe


The messy reunion of McLaren and Honda is over and both parties have new short-term futures to look forward to. Their woe is one frustrated young Formula 1 driver's gain...

It's all change at McLaren next year, with it having succeeded in its long, drawn-out quest to switch from Honda to Renault power for 2018.

Toro Rosso will run Honda engines next year, with Red Bull in line to do the same in the future should Honda's performance improve sufficiently - potentially giving Red Bull the works-engine operation it craves.
