But even if McLaren – whose sponsorship asking price is probably higher – fails to secure the deal, the respected correspondent for Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport, Michael Schmidt, says the team is financially secure.

That is because incoming works engine partner Honda is coming on board with a whopping EUR 100 million per year in financial backing. That package includes free engines, EUR 50 million in cash and a 50 per cent contribution to the drivers’ salaries. “Apparently, the money will already be flowing this season,” said Schmidt.
