Honda has found the problem with the AT01 and has made its statement on its website. Despite the burning car of Pierre Gasly, the boss of Honda’s F1 project Toyoharu Tanabe looks back on Friday in Portugal with satisfaction.
The circuit had a lot of challenges. It was new, so the drivers had to get used to the track. There was also a new layer of asphalt, which the drivers were not happy with. It was very slippery. In the second session, the teams had to conduct a Pirelli tire test, 30 minutes. In the second part we got a red flag twice. The teams could not carry out their program as they had in mind, so an extra challenge for Honda.
The technical director says that the focus was mainly on tuning the combustion engines. “The Algarve circuit is certainly very interesting and I think all drivers enjoy the challenge that it brings. Over the past two sessions, we have mainly focused on fine-tuning the power source and chassis to meet the requirements of the track. ”
“Our work on the engine has started, based on the results of the simulation work, and we were gradually able to combine it with the actual data from the track to optimize performance,” Tanabe said on Honda’s F1 project website.
Burning car Pierre Gasly
He also briefly returns to the burning car of AlphaTauri driver Pierre Gasly. “As usual, we will analyze everything in detail again. As for the incident with Gasly in VT2, we know it started because of an electrical power failure on the car. ”
