Yes, I'll be more than happy to watch their return. Also, why not Audi or Porsche? All these companies have legendary status in their own right so time is somewhat ripe for them to take a leap with new designs?

Cant see anything coming out of Japan for a while. Not unless it gets massive subsidies from some foreign investor. A shame too, cause the Honda HSV will sound better than anything F1 puts out next year.

Can you tell me where you heard and know it is fact?

Someone in Honda has said they want to return with the old buddies but this is not official and McLaren have not said.

But I would like to say that this would be good for them to come back and with the engine size change this helps benefit the motor industry. as who could afford to run an older engine size in the real world. We can only hope this happens and maybe it will.

Unimaginable in a near future if you read the article, not unimaginable at all. I guess these brands want to see the new actual engines first before taking a decision and some valuable info (and personnel) too...

That would be cool to have a French based Oreca-Toyota team ! Just a pipe dream...

The risk that these manufacturers would take is that their project might fail. And there's only three places on a podium. Add the high costs with the high probability of deemed failure, and you can see why they mightn't want to get involved.
