Remember the musings of Honda struggling to regain back the horsepower due to E10 fuel? Sure they had early gremlins this year but made a good recovery understanding the issues.
It would be nice to see improvements and upgrades for the ERS and battery too.
I hope they have success at Suzuka this year and maybe even have a chance to witness a win there. Singapore too, it's been a while since Asia has had a F1 race for the Honda fans.
There will be a significant upgrade to the ERS system after summer break and that along with a major chassis upgrade about the same time should bode well for RBR in the second half of the season.
Thank you so much for your contributions and insight over the years- it’s been wonderful.
Hope you don’t mind me asking this question in this thread, but may I ask:
1) Have there been obvious differences in the way Red Bull and Alpha Tauri have collaborated with Honda during this relationship, when compared to how McLaren approached things in 2015,2016, and 2017?
2) Do you have a feel for how Honda views McLaren after the 3 year collaboration- is there ever likely to be room for a reconciliation if the opportunity presented itself later down the line in due course? Or was significant damage done to the relationship? Is there a negative view of Fernando Alonso for example?
Apologies that it’s not engine-technical per se but more akin to the working relationships between engine suppliers and their team partners.
