The beginning of the article starts off by pointing out that the while the goal is to be carbon neutral by 2050, there is also the goal to have 2/3rds of all automobile sales to be electrified.

What he said specifically aside from what you've translated already:
"It's not that we are only pursuing carbon neutrality. Society is moving toward sustainability, and having experienced corona virus, the urgency(speed) in which it's heading has also increased.

It's not that we've changed what we were doing, but that the speed in which we were heading in that direction was not good enough. In addition to carbon neutrality as one aspect of sustainability, there is also the need to stop carbon emissions for all 4-wheel and 2-wheel vehicle's powertrains, otherwise we cannot meet the expectations of society nor can we lead in that field. The people who currently work on the F1 project are THE pros in that region(field), and they no longer will be available to work on F1 because of the need to have them work on the future power unit and energy laboratory. It is not that we've lost interest in F1 or that F1 is no good.
Thanks @Ispano.
Btw, this time GT translated my quote correctly?

If what you pasted wasn't modified yes that paragraph was pretty close though it was also relatively easy sentences to translate directly. The other paragraphs that I translated would probably have read strange with GT. Some words used would not have made sense in the way the grammar is laid out. GT could also be getting better with machine learning factoring in surrounding words to determine the context and phrasing of the text.

It wasn't modified, but the rest was very hard to read with GT. :( Thanks again @Ispano.

Comments on possible licensing of Honda intellectual property to RedBull? Is it gonna happen or they just will be handed the engines to operate with small team of tuning gurus? Can a frozen engine be competitive from 2022, 2023, 2024 & 2025?! Can fuel innovations make up for this?

FRIDAY PRACTICE PORTIMAO

A dramatic first day of practice at the Portuguese Grand Prix saw Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and Scuderia AlphaTauri both show pace but both have incidents. A new circuit offered up a new challenge to the drivers in Portugal, and it was clear they were all pushing to the limits with both Max and Daniil having spins when the track grip was low in FP1. Despite those moments - and Pierre needing to cut his running short due to an issue on the chassis side - we ended up with three of the four cars in the top ten, with Max third, Alex fifth and Pierre in tenth place. Daniil was 13th, just over a tenth slower than his team-mate. The first 30 minutes of FP2 were dedicated to Pirelli tyre testing, with prototype compounds being used by all the teams. This was a blind test, so both Red Bull and AlphaTauri simply had to follow the run plans given to them by Pirelli. In the final hour, we could work more on set-ups and the approach for the rest of the weekend, but Pierre was forced to stop on track as his car caught fire, leading to a red flag. We know the initial incident was caused by an electrical blackout on the car We are now carrying out out a full physical check on the PU itself. Shortly after running restarted, Max was caught in an incident with Lance Stroll at Turn 1 when the Racing Point turned in with Max on the inside. The stewards later decided no one driver was particularly to blame, so no further action was taken. The collision meant Max could not continue his low fuel run on soft tyres as the red flag was needed once again. Max still ended up second fastest behind Valtteri Bottas, but without having set a representative low fuel lap. Pierre was seventh and Alex tenth as again we had three cars in the top ten despite the disruption, while Daniil was another driver unable to do a clean qualifying simulation run and was 17th.

Thanks to Honda because the car wasn't good this year until now.

"12 months, 12 finishes & 12 podiums! 🏆
Huh??? I get a downvote for my post saying "what is this snide insinuation?
Horner and Marko themselves have admitted that the RB16 is only now a bit manageable, way too late in the season, so what am I saying wrong here and why is this called "snide insinuation"?
Be a man and tell on the forum what your problem is, instead of giving anonymous an unfounded downvote.

Setup

Round 13 and the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix sees F1 returning to Imola for the first time in 14 years. In 2006 we had Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button driving for the Honda Racing team. Back then, the race was called the San Marino Grand Prix and it saw Jenson start on the front row after an impressive Qualifying that put him P2. Much like the Brazilian Grand Prix, returning to Imola is an opportunity to pay respects and remember one of the true F1 greats, as it was here in the 1994 race that Ayrton Senna died, on a truly black weekend for the sport, as it also lost Simtek’s Roland Ratzenberger who was killed in qualifying the day before. For the third time this year, we’re heading for a home race alongside Scuderia AlphaTauri - the first of which saw Pierre stand on the top step - and we’ll be pushing once again for a strong weekend again for Honda power.


TOYOHARU TANABE
TECHNICAL DIRECTOR, HONDA F1

After last weekend’s race in southern Portugal, we now head to Italy for the third time this season. The Imola circuit is very close to Faenza so it really is a home race for our colleagues at AlphaTauri. Imola has a long history as a Formula 1 venue, with the San Marino Grand Prix taking place there up until 2006 and I have many memories from there, from racing and also testing. This weekend, Formula 1 will trial the two day race weekend format for the first time, with just 90 minutes of free practice on Saturday morning, prior to qualifying in the afternoon and the race on Sunday. Combined with the fact that this will be our first event at Imola in the hybrid era, we can expect a very busy time over the two days. It also means that all our pre-race simulation work is very important and we will rely on that during the single free practice session, as we work on optimising our PU settings, also taking into account everything we have learned this year. Last Sunday, Max and Pierre got the most out of their respective Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and Scuderia AlphaTauri packages and we hope that this Sunday all four of our drivers can have a good race.
