Frederic Vasseur the Contract with Honda would be a mistake
Head Sauber Frederic Vasseur said that he deliberately refused to cooperate with Honda.Frederic Vasseur "I joined the team on July 17 at 9 a.m., and the meeting with Honda was at 10 am. It was important to me. It is difficult to change the supplier of engines, but Honda at the time was not in very good shape.Plus, and probably the most important thing for me was that we were linked with McLaren contract for the supply of gearboxes. I was convinced because I had some contacts in McLaren that they will do everything possible to leave. Therefore, I could not risk the contract with Honda. Imagine if I had to request the gearbox from McLaren Honda. It would be an absolute nightmare."As you know, after the meeting with Honda Vasser decided to terminate the contract with the Japanese minders. This year Sauber will use Ferrari power plant.
