Maybe they just cancelled the road cars they were planning to build together? Because there is definitely a "Team McLaren Mercedes" in F1 this season.

I can imagine the conversation to go like this:

Mercedes "Take this 55 V8 engine, tune it to 600bhp and drop it in. What could be simpler?"

McLaren "Err...we need a couple of million pounds chassis and suspension development"

Mercedes "What for? Our AMG cars just need big power. Handling doesn't enter into the equation"

McLaren "Well it's not how McLaren do things"

it certainly costed a lot to realise the SLR; it makes more sense to offset the cost and use the technology and etc for cheaper models as previously planned.
but i guess ultimately MB knows that those AMG's can sell and people careless about mclaren.
