Even though the new Formula One season hasn’t even started, Honda is well on its way in preparations for returning to the circuit in 2015.
According to Formula1.com, Honda officials are making “steady progress” on the new turbocharged 1.6-liter V6 engine the company plans on powering the McLaren team with next season.
The story goes on to say that Honda has already established a F1 base in the United Kingdom and plans to install a dyno and assembly facilities are on target to be completed by June.
It also recently opened a new Honda Motorsports base in Sakura City, Tochigi, Japan, which will further the company’s F1 development program.
Honda powered McLaren to four consecutive championships from 1988 through 1991, with three titles by Ayrton Senna and one by Alain Prost. It also won the 1987 championship with Williams, with Nelson Piquet behind the wheel.
