TO THE EDITOR:
Regarding "Honda to quit Formula One to focus on zero-emission technology," autonews.com, Oct. 2: Wouldn't it make sense if Honda was to transfer the current engine technology to the likes of Ilmor or Cosworth for a symbolic sum, possibly building in premiums if the package is successful, etc.?
Honda enlisted Ilmor's expertise to improve it to the successful state it's currently at, but if Honda is not interested in pursuing continued development and manufacture, Cosworth would be eminently capable.
