I think you're reading way too much in to it. I think Honda has no problem, he tested in a Honda recently. And nothing like autosport showing they can't read their own article, multiple links all saying Honda says NO when in fact the response is more like Indycar engines are under the control of HPD not Honda so ask them. HPD has for the last two seasons asked Indycar to push for a third builder as they can't getting enough engines out to meet demand for the season never mind Indy only programs who almost all want Honda engines. It's a non story that shows they want to sell ads and get everyone to click. If McLaren/Alonso signs with Andretti there will be a Honda in the back of it, HPD will find a way to be involved as part of motorsports history and the "Triple Crown" end of story.

Maybe so, and hope I am because I think alsonso in indycar is a great idea...BUT....if Honda were 100 percent into this they would be chomping at the bit to supply him and Mclaren an engine...purely from the PR side of things and not letting Chevy get hold of him

Honda does NOT get to make the decision, it is an HPD program. They multiple times have said they don't tell HPD what to do, it's not hard. They are separate decisions and Honda respects the distance they give to HPD. And HPD had problems building that many engines, it has zero to do with anything previously. And if you remember Alonso was talking about the engine in F1 being garbage when he ran at Indy last season so blaming that is revisionist history

Honda F1 boss Masashi Yamamoto has said it's HPD's call and it is their programme but as I said, I think the real issue is with the number of engines HPD can supply. However, most people won't have heard of HPD but they will have heard of Honda and Alonso, so from a marketing point of view it's a no brainer. If Alonso were to win the 500 and therefore the Triple Crown, all that went before, like him saying the F1 engine is garbage, would instantly evaporate. The marketing potential for Honda is huge.

Shame for Fred that Honda won't supply him, but there are plenty of other engine manufacturers that could

I actually think Fred's test car livery is a dead ringer for Jordan 191 livery

HPD, who run the Honda IndyCar programme haven't definitely said they won't supply Alonso/McLaren. The headline for that Autosport article is misleading.

It will be interesting to read Robin Miller's roundup and mailbag tomorrow and see what news he can hint at for next season. Think a new engine builder would be a year away if they started now, it's not a hard thing to build I think but I'm guessing they would want time to build, dyno test, in car test and sign teams. But then they do have 6 months to do all that before St Pete.

A 3rd engine manufacturer needs to commit by May 2019.
