Cape Town - Honda F1 boss Yusuke Hasegawa is hoping to end "on a
high" with McLaren as the two parties prepare to go their separate ways
after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
After three years of pain and agony, McLaren will link up
with Renault next season while Honda are heading for a fresh start with Toro
But before that happens, Honda are wanting to go out with a
bang, so to speak.
"The weekend is significant as it is our final race as
McLaren-Honda," said Hasegawa.
"Despite this, everyone will be fully focussed on
extracting the full potential from our package and continuing the momentum we
have built over the last few races.
"I am incredibly proud of how hard everyone in the team
has worked this this season.
"I hope that we can end the year on a high, not just
for them, but also for the McLaren-Honda fans around the world that have
supported us during the last three seasons."
