Peugeot not interested in Honda assets

A day after rumors emerged PSA Peugeot-Citroën was looking at buying out Honda's F1 team, Peugeot has denied the claim.

“It's totally false,” Peugeot Sport spokesman Jean-Claude Lefebvre told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “We are having big problems with sales, just like all the manufacturers. We have other things to think about other than considering going to Formula 1.”

Meanwhile, David Richards' Prodrive, oft mentioned in the group of possible Honda buyers, announced it was pulling the plug on its Subaru WRC operation with immediate effect. This came a day after Suzuki suspended its own WRC program, as the growing economic crisis continues to take its toll on the world of motorsport.
