Ferrari confirms Honda engine offer

Ferrari confirms Honda engine offer
Powerplant in place should a buyer be found
07/01/09 10:04

The Honda V8 powerplant has run for the last time
Ferrari has confirmed that it will be able to offer engines to the Formula One team based at Brackley.

Following Honda's withdrawal from the sport, team boss Ross Brawn said he contacted his former colleagues at Ferrari about procuring the famous Italian outfit's 2.4 litre V8 power plant in 2009, should Honda Racing F1 be rescued by a buyer.

A Ferrari spokesman confirmed Brawn's account, and said no deal has been reached yet.

"They have asked us whether we would be able to provide them with engines, and we said yes," he is quoted as saying by the German news agency SID.

"That's all, nothing more," the spokesman added.

Including Toro Rosso, Ferrari supplied two customer teams with engines in 2008, but Force India will switch to Mercedes-Benz power ahead of the forthcoming season.
