-  Fernando Alonso, McLaren-Honda driver

"Working with Honda has always been very attractive to me, after the successful partnership they had in the 80's. I was a child, so I saw many of their victories and being part of the new McLaren Honda is an honour. With the newest technology that we now have in Formula One, it's a nice challenge, provided we can do it together with Honda. We want to deliver good results."

- Jenson Button, McLaren-Honda driver

"It's great to be part of the new Honda family. Being part of a new era of McLaren Honda is what I dreamed of as a kid. What really stands out about Honda is their passion for motor sport, their love for the sport, wanting to excel in the sport. Technology is something they're very good at. World championship is something we didn't achieve the last time, so we definitely have unfinished business."

- Takanobu Ito, President & CEO of Honda Motor Co., Ltd.:

"Taking on difficult challenges has been built into Honda's identity since the foundation of the company.

We're going to pursue environmental technologies introduced to F1 racing as part of our challenge is to pursue the ultimate in energy management that will lead to the technological excellence of Honda in the future. The severe environment of racing will also cultivate the development of professional human resources.

We take challenges in the F1 with strong determination represented by our corporate slogan - The Power of Dreams. We will now begin adding a new page to its history. Please keep your expectations high."
