Sauber's deal to run Honda engines in Formula 1 next season has been called off, according to multiple sources.

Reports emerging from Germany on Tuesday had suggested that the Japanese manufacturer had cancelled the deal, in the wake of the departure of team principal Monisha Kaltenborn.

However, sources with good knowledge of the situation have indicated matters are slightly different, and that the contract between Sauber and Honda that was announced earlier this year was never officially completed and activated.

That has led to a situation where Sauber's owners have in recent days decided that they would now prefer to look elsewhere for a power unit for 2018, so the Honda deal will not happen.

When asked for a response to the situation, a Honda spokesperson said: "This is purely media speculation, and we do not comment on speculation. Honda's relationship with Sauber has not changed."


Ako je ovo istina, to bi znacilo da Honda napusta F1 u slucaju da Meklaren raskine ugovor.


A to Liberti nece dozvoliti jer ne zele da izgube jednog od 4 proizvodjaca.


Sto znaci da ce da padnu neke velike pare da Honda ostane sa Meklarenom.


Sto onda objasnjava promenu u komentarima nakon Austrije, uprkos nikakvoj primetnoj pozitivnoj promeni u performansama i rezultatima.

Sad je pravi momenat da Honda uradi sve radi zadržavanja Ilijena. Vaseur bi mogao srediti Renoove motore Zauberu jer je Reno sam rekao da bi mogao opskrbljivati četvrtu ekipu..

Verlajn kaže da je otvoren za sve opcije za angažman u sledećoj sezoni, realno mogao bi uskočiti umesto Mase ako ovaj ode u pravu penziju.

Wehrlein is 'open to offers' for 2018

Sauber driver Pascal Wehrlein has said he's a free agent after the end of the current season, and that he has no idea where he might be driving in 2018.

Asked by the official Formula 1 website whether he was completely open next year, the 22-year-old said: "At the moment, yes." Pressed further as to whether he was on the market, he confirmed: "Yes, you could say so."

"I have a contract for this season so I am only focusing on this year," he elaborated. "I cannot influence anything. Decisions are made by others and I am only here to drive - to perform as well as I can."

Wehrlein missed the first two races of the season with a bank injury. But he's since picked up five valuable constructors points for Sauber in Spain and Azerbaijan.

Last year he also picked up Manor's sole point of the year at Austria. He's hoping that this ability to pick up opportunistic points against expectations hasn't gone unnoticed in the Formula 1 paddock.

"The weekends where we score points are very, very special for us," he said. "We don’t have the car to finish in the top ten often – only if the stars are in the right place!

"We have to take the opportunity and bag the points. I am very happy that when the chance was there I was able to grab it - I want to be there when it counts.

"I think it gets noticed that I have scored points in cars that under normal circumstances don’t score points," he added.

Wehrlein has been a test and reserve driver for both Mercedes and Force India. He also won the 2015 DTM championship with the Mercedes team managed by HWA AG. But his route to an F1 seat with the marque appear to be blocked by Valtteri Bottas' recent success.

"I cannot influence such a decision," Wehrlein said when asked about his prospects of getting a seat with the reigning constructors champion.

"Worrying about things that you cannot influence is wasting your time and wasting your strength and efforts.

"Yes, Valtteri is doing a good job - and he deserves it."

Sauber are due to change to Honda engines next year, although there have been conflicting reports about whether the deal will actually go ahead. Wehrlein says he knows no more than anyone else about that.

"I have no idea what is happening next year. Of course, I have heard all these rumours as well.

"Of course I want to see Sauber do well," he added. "They have the potential and have already been in good positions in the past, and I want them to get back there.

"The team wants to do better than we are doing now or did last season," he admitted. "[At the moment] we need ‘lucky races’. It is definitely a different situation now than it has been.

"The team wants to get back to where they were around five years ago. You can physically feel this desire in the team."

To bi bilo OK samo sto je Martini kao generalni sponzor trazio nekog starijeg (zbog imidza). Njima je i Felipe Nasr bio premlad a stariji je dve godine od Verlajna.
