Isn't that interview from months ago? I could've swore I read something similar with Hasegawa talking about not deciding about next season spec, etc. It might have even been before the McLaren split was made official.
Amus says the 3.8 spec Honda PU produced 881bhp, is this correct, Wazari?
We got the horsepower data of the four manufacturers for the internal combustion engine in kilowatts and then count on another 163 hp of electric power. Theoretically, the full battery should last for 33 seconds. In fact, at least Mercedes boosts the entire lap on every racetrack. Because the MGU-H more electric power indicator: contributed as the battery can absorb. The then goes from the MGU-H directly into the MGU-K.
Now to the numbers. After these measurements, the Mercedes M08 V6 Turbo has a system performance of 949 hp. Ferrari comes to 934 hp, Renault to 907 hp and Honda with the latest specification to 881 hp. Previously, the Japanese just scratched at the 860 hp mark".
The gap between Mercedes and the competition is also evident in consumption. For 305 kilometers of the GP Mexico burned the Mercedes six-cylinder 89 kilograms of fuel. The competition needed 10 kilograms more.
