"The minimum is two, there's no question about it. A minimum of two teams and two good teams, if possible.
And the maximum number... if we have to supply a lot more teams then we will gear up to do it; it is not exactly our immediate wish because I think you also have to be very realistic about it and know that we are a new company.
The people working in the company are not new, they are veterans in the field of Formula 1 engine supply, but to supply another team would just require more organisation. But as long as we know early enough, we will be happy.

"McLaren has had absolutely no contact with PURE for many months," said a McLaren spokesman. "Moreover, the contact we did have with PURE, many months ago, was of an entirely informal nature, and was merely a courtesy gesture."
Last November, McLaren's managing director Jonathan Neale had to dismiss reports that the outfit was trying to lure Honda back into F1.
"That is all wide of the mark," said Neale about the Honda speculation. "We are very happy with and enjoying our partnership with Mercedes-Benz. We are not quite sure where that story came from in truth.
"But I can stop the rumour and say that we are entirely focused on our Mercedes-Benz relationship. It is a long one spanning many wins and championships and long may it continue."
McLaren's current engine deal is understood to run until the end of 2015.
This is definitely an exclusive engine operation for a particular team. What was most curious was how they were in with the four banger idea long before anything about them became public.
