Press Conference



Fernando Alonso, McLaren Honda Driver

Working with Honda has always been very attractive to me, after the successful partnership they had in the 80’s. I was a child, so I saw many of their victories and being part of the new McLaren Honda is an honour. With the newest technology that we now have in Formula One, it’s a nice challenge, provided we can do it together with Honda. We want to deliver good results.



Jenson Button, McLaren Honda Driver

It’s great to be part of the new Honda family. Being part of a new era of McLaren Honda is what I dreamed of as a kid. What really stands out about Honda is their passion for motor sport, their love for the sport, wanting to excel in the sport. Technology is something they're very good at. World championship is something we didn't achieve the last time, so we definitely have unfinished business.

We’re going to pursue environmental technologies introduced to F1 racing as part of our challenge is to pursue the ultimate in energy management that will lead to the technological excellence of Honda in the future. The severe environment of racing will also cultivate the development of professional human resources.

「創業期より、Hondaはチャレンジすることをアイデンティティとして、半世紀以上にわたり、F1をはじめとするさまざまなレースに参戦し、四輪車メーカーとしての実力を磨いてきました。四輪最高峰レースであるF1に新しく導入された環境技術は、Hondaにとって真価を発揮するチャンスです。今回F1に参戦する意義は、将来、Hondaの卓越した技術につながる、究極のエネルギーマネジメントへのチャレンジにあります。また、過酷なレースは、プロフェショナルな人材を育む場にもなります。F1という極限の世界で培われた技術や人材を通じて、Hondaはイノベーションを起こし、勝ち続けることで、ファンの皆さんの期待に応えたいと思います。この夢の実現に向け、Hondaは、コーポレートスローガンである『The Power of Dreams』に強い決意の気持ちを込めて、F1にチャレンジします。2人の素晴らしいワールドチャンピオンを迎え、志を一つにしたMcLaren-Hondaの、新たな歴史にご期待ください」
