Honda has had a difficult time in Formula 1 and has with good reason been very udskældt. But now it seems japanese venture, which provides engines to Red Bull and søsterholdet Toro Rosso, having found the right recipe for success.
the Development, which Red Bull has walk in, pointing in the positive direction, and according to B. T.'s Formula 1 correspondent, we have much more in store from the Honda-powered Red Bull racer.
"I think they are a real suitor for Mercedes and Ferrari battle for the WORLD cup next year," says Peter Nygaard in the latest issue of K-Magazine, you can hear further down in the article .
Honda has far from had it easy in the Formula 1 field, and when the engine was in the McLaren-the car is back in 2015, it was almost one long lament from former Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso, who had not much left over for the Honda engine.
One of the problems was that the Honda came in time with the development of hybridmotorerne much later than the others in the Formula 1 field.
In 2014 were the teams and the engine suppliers in Formula 1, which at the time included the Honda, ready with the new hybrid engines as a result of the amended regulations, and the Honda turned first return in 2015 as supplier to McLaren.
But the McLaren-Honda collaboration was anything but successful, and when the two sides parted in 2017, it was probably very few, who had expected Celtabet to see the Honda in cooperation with the first Toro Rosso in 2018, and since Red Bull here in 2019.
But the Honda engine has been transformed since the move from McLaren-the cars for Red Bull. And Peter Nygaard think as already mentioned, that they have much more up its sleeve.
"I don't think it will stop here, for they are one year after the other (in development with hybridmotren, ed.), so it means that their udviklingskurve not have peaked yet. They can still pull the horsepower out of the Honda engine, so they will be even better next year."
In the latest issue of K-Magazine gets you the story of the Honda engine, as Fernando Alonso back in 2015 on direct tv during the Japan Grand Prix called for a 'GP2-engine' - understood, in no way had at home in Formula 1. A criticism, as a journalist Mikkel Bagger fully understand.
"It didn't work out, then it sat in the McLaren, but it has the turn done, when it switched over to Toro Rosso and Red Bull. The criticism it got was justified, for it could almost not run two races without going to pieces," says Mikkel Bagger.
"I also think it is justified to praise them now, for it is going really well, and they have really come a long way in the last two seasons," he adds.
