Honda RA107

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Honda RA107

Post by m3_lover » Mon Jan 22, 2007 8:36 am

At Silverstone, meanwhile, Honda is scheduled to run its new 'RA107' for the very first time on Monday.

Simon: Nils? You can close in now. Nils?
John McClane: [on the guard's phone] Attention! Attention! Nils is dead! I repeat, Nils is dead, ----head. So's his pal, and those four guys from the East German All-Stars, your boys at the bank? They're gonna be a little late.
Simon: [on the phone] John... in the back of the truck you're driving, there's $13 billon dollars worth in gold bullion. I wonder would a deal be out of the question?
John McClane: [on the phone] Yeah, I got a deal for you. Come out from that rock you're hiding under, and I'll drive this truck up your ass.

There won't be pictures. It's like the shakedown from Toyota, no pictures were spread from that event until the launch of the car.
I guess we'll have to wait till Thursday to see the new RA107 in the black interim livery.

There wasn't supposed to be any photos of the R27s shakedown but we got some. Having said that I'm not holding my breath for any pics today, Thursday isn't such a wait.

There would have been pictures of the R27 in winter livery anyway as the team tested at Jerez last week. But Honda won't test anymore before the launch (just like with toyota), so I believe there won't be pictures!

I wondered who it was making all that racket. Some of us are trying to do Applied Mathematics and Vehicle Science over the road!! :wink:

Hehe, hardly.

I was just on break from school for a while, and I didn't really have anything better to do than scour the 'net for all things Formula 1.

I can't find anything on the RA107 though.

I see Honda have copied Renault's new sidepod-mounted mirrors (or were they copied from Ferrari?). Wonder how many other teams have thought of that?

It seems like Honda has gone back to single keel front suspension! I wonder why... Meanwhile I have noticed on F2007 that ferrari's front suspension looks a lot like a no keel suspension! Lower wishbone is placed very high compared to F248

The nose looks so tight. Again, like most other teams, the sidepods are very narrow as well!
