Honda Bringing Upgraded Engine To British GP

As the McLaren F1 team continues to improve, its engine supplier, Honda, has confirmed that it’ll debut an upgraded engine at the impending British Grand Prix.

Honda first upgraded its internal combustion engine for the Canadian Grand Prix through an improve turbocharger turbine and for the British round, has again focused on the traditional engine rather than any of the hybrid systems.

This time, Honda has developed an improve air intake which it believes will improve the efficiency of the combustion process to therefore provide more power. This relatively minor upgrade has cost the Japanese marque two of its engine development tokens, meaning it still has 10 to spend throughout the rest of the season in its efforts to return to the top of the sport.

Discussing the company’s improvements, Honda’s F1 chief Yusuke Hasegawa said “I think since we have introduced the new turbine [things have improved]. Canada and Azerbaijan are too competitive from a power point of view. We’ve come back to a normal circuit and I think that is the reason why we can prove that our update was working well, I think.”

In Austria, Jenson Button finished in sixth position for the team, just the second time he’s scored a top six finish since McLaren and Honda joined forces in 2015.
