TORRANCE, California – With news that James Hinchliffe’s services will no longer be needed for Arrow McLaren SP next season in the NTT Indycar Series, Honda officials held a press conference to talk about their 2020 motorsport strategy. “We’re very thankful for all of our drivers, especially guys like James and Ryan,” said Honda spokesman Tom Waters, “They do a lot for the brand in terms of engagement and we like to reward them by giving them less rides and let them know all of the fan engagement and PR they do is not worth it. It’s all part of the plan and it’s really paying off. Hopefully we can one day turn into Nissan.”
Honda officials concluded their press conference by announcing they have some really great Acura DPi and Honda NSX Super GT opportunities for Graham Rahal and Santino Ferrucci planned for the upcoming seasons.
