No Jeff. In order for it to be very 'F1' of them, he would have to be a current MB employee that will join Honda after this season is over LOL.

Quite the delta between Hartley (new PU) who nearly qualified best of the rest in Q1 and within a second of the best.

Gasly (old PU) however just missed out.

It would seem that the delta matches the expected half second anticipated. That's a great result, the problem with Gasly's PU, not so much. :(

It's about half a second between Hartley and Gasly, so I would hope the Gasly delta could be larger ^o^.

Interesting article from Honda F1 official site:

http://en.hondaracingf1.com/insights/the-power-of-track-traction.html

quote
“Current FIA regulations don’t allow traction control on the ECU, so we cannot have automatic traction control,” Mori-san points out. “From the free practice results and the driver’s comments we do tune the boost settings so the driver gets what he wants at each corner. If we saw massive wheelspin, then basically the driver can manage the traction by himself. It’s definitely more on the driver than on the settings.”


But there’s more to putting the power down than simply the way the power unit is being operated. The greater the vertical load on the rear tyres, the less likely they are to spin, and that means the level of downforce also has an impact.

The USGP upgrade looks promising if that's what to expect.

the machine translation is a little difficult to follow but if Honda is going from around 715 to 750hp, that does sound promising. And it sounds like they should be well ahead of Renault by then (and hopefully far more reliable) but again, the machine translation is a little weird, as it seems to say that Renault themselves claim to only be down about 15hp from Ferrari/Merc.

From article: Renault’s CA says their engine in race trim is no more then 15ps down on Mercedes and Ferrari but 25ps ahead of Honda.
The other data show however that “R” quali engine is 710 ps now with c spec being at 730ps and Honda is introducing 750ps one at Austin. Ferrari in quali trim is the leader at 790ps and Mercedes follows with 10ps less then prancing horse power plant. In race trim Ferrari and Mercedes should be leveled.

Very interesting!

With the potential for still a lot more development hopefully, with the potential and ability to achieve more than the other 3 manufacturers, it will be really interesting to see what happens in the next two seasons with the Red Bull teams in F1. :-)

Looks like Rolled was on the money about this. The top brass @ Honda in Japan are not interested in having any working relationship with Alonso. He bad mouthed Honda too much in front of a global audience.

The worry is will this refusal push Andretti towards running Chevrolet power again? Honda can ill afford loosing their best team to Bowtie power!
