It's not Honda that has asked Ferrari for Engines.

Ross Brawn approched them, because Honda have said they will NOT supply the team with engines. So any outfit that buys Honda will have to source engines.

With an engine supplier in place - it will be easier to sell Honda. Honda wont be on the 2009 Grid.

I think the thread starter has put confusing words in his post.

The team is being sold. It will not be a Honda team. Some xyz team with Ferrari engines.

Exactly ! It's no longer Honda-Racing-Team, if they find a buyer they would just become another independent team like Williams (Toyota engines), Red-Bull (Renault engines), Torro-Rosso (Ferrari engines), & Force-India (Ferrari engines)...
