Autosport podcast: How it all went wrong for McLaren-Honda in F1

Fernando Alonso McLaren retires Canadian GP 2017

With the separation of McLaren and Honda now official, The Autosport Podcast explains what made this Formula 1 match made in heaven into a nightmare.

Ben Anderson and Stuart Codling join Edd Straw to explain what went so badly wrong for an alliance that enjoyed so much success from 1988-1992.

From the communication between the UK and Japan to the struggle to master the complex hybrid engine technologies to the litany of reliability problems, the many reasons why this partnership was doomed from the start are discussed.

There's also a look at what can be expected from Toro Rosso, which is now teaming up with Honda, as a result of this most unusual engine 'silly season'.
