 I watch MotoGp , WSB and BSB (and don't forget TT just started) - much more exciting than boring old F1

But Yamaha and Kawasaki are doing better than Honda at the moment  in motorbike racing

Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Oh dear, Alonso and McLaren-Honda so close to bagging their first points of the season, until Alonso was forced to retire on lap 69 of 70 with mechanical issues.

McClaren are definitely making approaches to Mercedes for a supply of engines from next season on. That's the only way they may keep Alonso,whose contract expires this year and he has told McClaren  that if there is no improvement by September he is off.
The financial aspects of dropping Honda are considerable. They contribute towards the drivers salaries and supply the engines free of charge. Engine cost alone would be about 11M and then they would be about two races behind with updates.
There is no way of knowing the efficiency of the McClaren car as it doesn't perform for long enough or fast enough to determine.

An 80m hit to drop Honda most seem to speculate.  It's also pretty tough to only supply / test / feedback two cars, things may have been better if they had also convinced a junior team to switch to Honda when McClaren did.

Ron Dennis has severed all ties with McClaren and sold his shares to existing share holders.
He was a leading light at McClaren for many years.

The look on Alonso's face as he walked through the garage spoke volumes.
Where will he be next year, my bet is Ferrari.

Alonso finished in 6th and Vandoorne in 10th in the Hungarian GP.

With the mid-season break upon us McLaren-Honda are in 9th place on 11 points, six ahead of bottom-placed Sauber-Ferrari but 15 points behind Renault. Alonso and Vandoorne are in 15th and 18th places respectively in the drivers' championship.

Reports are suggesting that neither Mercedes or Ferrari will supply engines to McLaren next year so if they decide to dump Honda that leaves them with Renault.
If Honda decide that enough is enough that could leave McLaren in deep poo.
