Nothing official from Honda or Mercedes
as the rumours continue...
The team currently known as Honda will be in Melbourne, but has secured enough backing to guarantee its presence at only the subsequent three Grand Prix according to one report.

The Guardian on Friday agreed with speculation and reports that an immediate solution to the Brackley-based squad's situation, following the withdrawal of owner, sponsor and engine supplier Honda, has been found.


But, citing sources 'close to the' team, the British newspaper said the secured $30m funds, in part thanks to Brazilian sponsors backing the rookie Bruno Senna, may get Honda to only Australia, Malaysia, China and Bahrain.

The report also claims Senna and Jenson Button will be powered by Mercedes-Benz V8 engines.

Honda supposedly guaranteed 80 - 90 mio $. Severance for the team employees and dissolving equipment would ave cost more.
