Honda has hired Osama Goto to help fix the F1 PU.

Goto is the father of Honda F1 engines of the 80,90's and the father of the Ferarri F1 engines late 90's.

What is there to fix other than their ERS system which I can't see him being as knowledgeable on?

Finally Honda decided to do something.

I insist IMO that Mr. Arai fail big time, well I donīt know if big time, but for any angle to you see it, this is a failure and embarrassment for Honda.

Great news indeed!

Given the way things have been going, it seems that the above headline/subject line is more appropriately read as "Honda F1 Breaking -- News" rather than "Honda F1 -- Breaking News."

He is not hired to fix the PU but to be the middleman between Honda and McLaren to solve the commucation problem.

He has worked for Honda and Mclaren before and is very respected by both.Also he is more European now in thougth after living there for over 20 years.(so can translate Japanese thinking into round eye thinking)
And is a natural leader.

Now that makes sense. It is funny, the Honda technical paper on their last F1 involvement stated that they had underestimated working relationship and culture issues between the BAR British shop and the Honda Japanese shop.

This could be a turning point for F1 program. He is actively involved in Ferrari F1, until the restructure.

I hope he can quickly aid the power unit to gain the vital reliability in the coming Europe race

He won't be involved in any technical stuff with the PU. More likely he's there to mentor the Japanese, and make them aware of issues in language they can deal with?
