There's a pattern emerging.

It's not officially announced yet, but the McLaren Honda partnership is at an end:

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/m...ership-952183/

They're going to take a Renault engine until the end of this set of regulations, Toro Rosso are taking the Honda presumably so Red Bull have the option to switch to it, assuming it ever comes good.

Knowing Alonso's luck though Honda will probably solve all their problems next year and there will be a Red Bull Honda world championship in 2019

They are having trouble, but they seem to be spending the money to try and get it working. Engines are changing (they're talking about doing their own) so they could easily come good. Good bet hedge by RB

RB are lucky that they have their B team to test things out on. McLaren must be hoping that Ross has successfully talked Porsche into coming back.

It's a pity McLaren didn't buy Manor to run as a "B team" until Honda were up to speed.

Although rumours are Porsche will be buying Red Bull to become a works team in 2021.

Sounds interesting, presumably still with RB sponsorship? Seems an odd time to be coming in with the Honda issues, might not be a great advert.

Red Bull to use Honda engines next year as well!

I hope for Alonso's sanity that Honda don't come good soon, but stranger things have happened!

Just read it again, not sure if I miss read it or it's been updated, but yes, they will use Honda engines in 2019.

I thought Red Bull were getting bought out by Porsche, or did I dream that?

Raining heavier in Singapore now. Should be interesting to see how it affects visibility as we've never had a night race in the rain before.
