Cape Town - The ink has barely dried on their divorce papers, but McLaren would happily return to Honda in the future and race with them again.

2017 marked the end of the duo's disastrous three-year relationship with McLaren joining forces with Renault after breaking their 10-year contract with Honda, who will supply Toro Rosso instead next season.

But McLaren director Zak Brown is open to working with Honda again as he claims that they have always maintained an excellent relationship with the Japanese manufacturer.

"We are grateful to Honda," Brown told Sky Sports.

"They're a great company, with great people, and the relationship was always strong.

"The relationship still is strong. Wouldn't rule out racing with them again, wish them the best but we needed to make some tough decisions to do what's in our best interest."

When asked again if McLaren would work with Honda again, he reiterated: "Oh of course, absolutely."
