PURE issue own clarification on McLaren talk

Craig Pollock: The contact between PURE and McLaren was towards the end of last year when we visited all F1 teams to present the PURE powertrain programme...

After McLaren denied reports this week suggesting that it was speaking to Craig Pollock's PURE company about a future F1 engine supply [see separate story - click here], Jacques Villeneuve's former manager has said that while they did pay the Woking-based team a visit at the end of 2011, they also visited all the other F1 teams too.

Speaking in an interview with 422race.com Pollock added that there have been no 'follow-up meetings or discussions' since.

"The contact between PURE and McLaren was towards the end of last year when we visited all F1 teams to present the PURE powertrain programme,” Pollock told the Italian site.

“This meeting took place with Gilles Simon and myself along with the pertinent McLaren representatives. There has been no follow up meeting or discussions to date.

“We will contact McLaren and all other teams shortly for the follow up meetings,” he summarised.

In the 'rumour' season, Autosport today removed a story about McLaren being prepared to fight for the legality of of some 'radical' interpretations of the rules for the forthcoming MP4-27. Along with some assosiated coments by McLaren Applied Technologies managing director Geoff McGrath. Comments that suggested that the team believed particularly in the latter part of the season the McLaren was the best car on the grid, but Vettel was simply better than everyone else. Sky Sports have the 'story' without refernce to McGraths thoughts.
