BAR may race old engines

Despite using the DNF rule loophole in Melbourne, BAR-Honda may not actually install new engines for the Malaysian grand prix. The F1 team's controversial last-lap tactic, theoretically, cleared the path for exclusion from the 2-race regulation.

But it's reported that a spokesperson said fitting fresh V10s for Jenson Button and Takuma Sato remained a mere 'option. "We will not decide until later," the spokesperson was quoted.

But Honda racing president Shoichi Tanaka - opposed to the 2-race rule - told Italian paper Gazzetta dello Sport that a decision had indeed been made. The Japanese said: "We've decided to change the engines. I am certain ... many will follow our example."
