Franz Tost was more pleased that he would not have to work with Renault in the coming year - and over Fernando Alonso's eighth place in the current Honda-fueled McLaren: "It's fantastic, I have Mr. Hasegawa (Honda project manager; Red.) Immediately congratulated, because it was great work. "

I hope Honda buy Toro Rosso completely in the next year or so. Its so boring having 2 Red Bull teams. Its just 2 cars on the grid used to help the mothership. At least Honda will dream of winning.

Williams
Renault
Force India
Mclaren

All dream of winning a race,

Sauber
Haas
Toro rosso

Dream of ??? Not a lot. 😪

HRC colours not away from Toro Rosso's this year livery. They can do small changes and both side will be visible from colours.

Surprised at that. Gasly was always going to get the job, but Hartley ,

Still, good for him. And hopefully he has a good season.

Honda ran Esso fuel and Mobil 1 lubricants during its first two seasons with McLaren, but the American brand switched allegiance to Red Bull for 2017.

As a result, McLaren-Honda did a deal to run Castrol/BP products for this campaign.

Toro Rosso ran Esso and Mobil products in 2017, falling into line with senior team Red Bull.

It was unclear whether Honda would continue with Castrol/BP on joining Toro Rosso or return to ExxonMobil.

But it is believed both sides were keen to pursue an arrangement with ExxonMobil, following past experience and recent rate of development.

Red Bull has been pleased with the gains Esso has made this season, with the team suggesting its latest upgrade delivered a performance improvement worth one grid slot depending on the circuit.

The supplier is aiming to introduce three fuel upgrades across next season as well as a series of lubricant improvements.

I hope that STR-Honda will go for a more white and red livery next year that resembles the old BAR/Super Aguri liveries. I think that they can implement the red bull logo's and still get that Japanese race car feel.

I wouldn't get your hopes up. Red Bull is all about Red Bull...the engine is just a necessary evil. I mean heck, they rebrand it Tag something and then have Aston as a sponsor. All Renault get is grief from the partnership (and maybe a few dollars). Hope im wrong but I'd be very surprised if Honda are extended any better acknowledgement by the junior team.
