A legendary name returns to F1...

Mclaren confirmed this morning that they will have Honda engines for the 2015 Formula One season.

For the fans, this news brings back memories of the 1988 - 1992 seasons where the Marlboro sponsored Mclarens ruled the roost in F1. Whether it was Prost, Senna or Berger behind the wheel of the red and white cars, they were often the cars to beat on track.

At one stage, any driver due to be lapped in a Grand Prix would near enough jump off the track when they saw a red and white car driven by a man in a yellow helmet come up behind them...

Myself, I was always a fan of the Yellow, Blue and White Williams Renault cars and the Mclarens were always the enemy. But in 2015 I'll be cheering them on.

This is great for F1 as Honda's decision means the new engine regulations were acceptable for their return and it also gives Mclaren a shot at being a front running team against the might of the Renault, Ferrari and Mercedes powered cars.

Suddenly it seems F1 is worth getting excited about again...
