    Correct 2015, from what I understand so far. They have been stealing some good Engineers already.

    Also, I think they will only supply Engines to McLaren.

    When they were with McLaren as an engine supplier back in the day, they were very successful. When they came back with their own cars (BAR Honda) they didn't have much success and the heads at Honda grew tired of spending hundreds of millions of dollars for "nothing" The team was sold to Ross Brawn and promptly won the championship when he found the loop hole in the rules allowing for a double diffuser. That team became what is now the Mercedes team.

    Correct, in 2015. The deal was signed late, and Honda didn't feel comfortable with a product with such a low amount of development time. 2014, Mclaren will run Mercs powerplant.
