From Reddit, Toto congratulates Honda's F1 boss Masashi Yamamoto. And yes he speaks english.

This was fantastic to see. =D>
this reaction and the words of Toto shows clearly, Honda is close again and that they are competitive this year, but Bahrain and China will tell us the true story on how close Honda really is
No, if you want to really see the gap, its Canada (highest fuel consumption) and SPA (second highest WOT, with so many technical corner). Unfortunately Sepang is not there anymore (hottest circuit)

T1 speed, Ferrari loses big, Merc just a bit, RB almost equal to last year
T2 speed All loses but Ferrari and Merc more then RB
Finish line speed, RB the biggest gainer compared to 2018, Ferrari loses speed again, Merc gains a bit

At 1:04 we can see the steering-dash: it shows "K start ready"
Can we assume the car is ready to start the PU via MGU-K?

that's not only what i meant, i meant what leap the made compared to last year, that can not only be reached by lower wing angles.
For McLaren means that they are on the right path with the chassis, for TR it ment engine and chassis wise... how they developed

Agreed, more impressive than the outright speed is the improvement year on year from both... Wondering what Bahrein will bring us in terms of data.

Its not a surprise because Honda already used MGU-K to start the PU last year.

Yes, leap was made, but it those 2 cases it's exacerbated.

Good job Honda and a triple points finish! First two races out of the way and all Honda drivers have scored points!
It's fitting that reliability is proving to be Red Bull's strength. Hopefully some more performance can be brought to the next race.

It is a pity. Last year you could not see the potential of the Honda engine, because STR did not have such a good car.
This year RBR has a very "bad" car, which will probably not be good until race 5.
The Honda engine however is strong and reliable.
You could see it with Alexander Albon during the race. He has delivered a very good performance and this is only his 2nd race and has never driven an F1 car before! =D>

Relax guys Dan the man ticktum will drive the wheels off this RedBull on Wednesday and identify the missing link to the inability to switch the C3 compound.
On a serious note, they will get more data in testing, so come China with the C4 they should have better showing.

So, this time, I would like to briefly introduce the main members of Honda F1. (Pray that the person does not read ... LOL)

As well as last year, Honda's circuit site will be led by technical director Toyoji Tanabe. I am a long-time race shop who has spent most of his career on the circuit. Even when I joined the team last year, despite coming from different categories, the engineers were in a hurry to take control and lead the new scene with great speed. I always calm down during work, and instantly, but I will make a decision. (Actually, I am humorous and smiling outside of work. I was delighted with the results of this time, too.

Image

Below that are two chief engineers. Motohashi Engineer is responsible for Toro Rosso, and George Engineer for Red Bull. Motohashi engineer has a relationship with Mr. Tanabe from the middle of the third stage F1 and can be said as a right arm. (I was scared at first, so I didn't talk to him at first. But in fact, it's a kind-hearted elder brother, and it's really a system. It's called 'bear' by Tanabe-san.

George Engineer has been with Tanabe for over 25 years (!) Since the 1993 Indy Project. This is also because I have been working together for many years, and it is Amida's breathing. In the past, he experienced categories such as F1 and NASCAR, and can be said to be a professional running race engines. I am very stoic about my work, but I have a deep understanding of Japanese and Honda's way of working and I am a reliable leader for the members. (I remember only strange Japanese words, but I'm not good at sashimi. I like to talk with other cultures while racing with him.)

Image

Apart from the circuit, the leader of PU development at HRD-Sakura in Japan is Project Leader Yasuaki Asaki. Under last year's leadership, under strong leadership, the direction of development has been clarified to improve PU performance and reliability. Mr. Tanabe says, "It is a very encouraging person because it is a person who understands the key to technology, and understands this even if he does not say much". (When I first talked about it, it was an impression of "old-fashioned Honda engineer-stubborn-------but it is a pro-skin, it is a person who has the warmth of giving me a fine attentiveness to my subordinates.)

Image

Masashi Yamamoto (currently General Manager of the Motorsport Department), who will become Managing Director in April, will continue to be in charge of team management, team / FIA negotiations and marketing that are far from technology. (In fact, last Friday was my birthday). I have experience as a driver, and I have also had a race in the world of Kart with Max Verstappen father and former F1 driver Jos Verstappen.

Image

The attitude that leads us with a strong will and a clear vision for "Honda's race" is said to be "the old-fashioned Honda-like person" along with Mr. Asaki from the Japanese media. On the other hand, the team and others are said to be "not at all Japanese" due to their open personality, and have gained a great deal of trust. (The attitude that everyone can immediately understand is rather Latin. It's also a motivator for people and a negotiator for different ways of using it)

(Who will appear next time ...)
