Honda Shuts Down Hamilton's "Suspicion" on Engine Power

  • Gepubliceerd op Maand geleden

    Formula World

    Red Bull have been performing well in the last few races and some including Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton have suggested that the recently introduced Honda power unit came with significant upgrades which is why they have been so fast. Lewis Hamilton once again touched on this during the second race weekend in Austria while Honda’s F1 technical director Toyoharu Tanabe has offered his rebuttal

    I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World:

    Hamilton Suspicious Of Red Bull’s Pace Advantage

    Hamilton began by suggesting that Red Bull have something extra and even though Mercedes have made a small step forward, it won’t be enough

    “They definitely have something extra in their bag. I think we made some small progression. I think they still have the two-tenths lead, or maybe a tenth and a half. We made steps, but not enough to make up that two-tenths deficit”

    He also implied that Red Bull may have something akin to their qualifying mode from a couple of years ago

    “Over a single lap, it felt good. But Red Bull will be using extra engine power. They almost have a qualifying mode like we had a few years ago. I don't know where they get it from”

    He reiterated that Red Bull are too fast for them

    “I'm pretty sure it will stay the same. Whatever gap they have [in qualifying], they have that gap in the race. We're going to push and we're going to work on improving the car. Our race pace looked good, but I have to look at it a little bit more”

    Honda F1's Technical Director, Toyoharu Tanabe stated that their current power unit is of the same specification as the previous one

    “I am very happy if it is true. It is not true. According to the current regulations, a power update is not allowed during the season. As a result, our second power unit is the same as the first in terms of specification and performance”

    He then explained where the improved performance is coming from

    “The current performance improvement is the result of the hard work of Honda and the teams. We are only allowed to change for reasons of reliability, cost considerations and logistics. We must first submit very detailed changes to the FIA, and the FIA has approved those changes”

    He signed off by giving his reply to all the suspicion

    “The FIA distributes all the documents to the other PU manufacturers. So we need the approval of the other major manufacturers to change the specifications of a part. We are very careful about changing the performance. It is not possible to improve the performance during the season. That's my answer to that suspicion”

    Red Bull team principal Christian Horner feels that if they “can find a balance with a smaller wing it will only help [them] in the battle with Mercedes who [they] expect to be strong”

    He also added that “Honda are doing a great job. [They're] lucky to have that amount of support. They have pulled forward next year’s engine into this year”

    “They have worked hard in what will be their final year. It will be sad to see them leave the sport at the end of the year but [they've] still got six months where [they've] got to go for it”

    Alpine’s Fernando Alonso has stated that their test driver Guanyu Zhou “executed FP1 perfectly, slowly building the pace, and no stress with many things”

    “It was not an easy FP1 with traffic, with the [practice] start at the end, so there are a couple of exercises that you need to execute - like the start, the formation lap, etcetera - that he did manage very well”

    Guanyu Zhou, meanwhile, is “really thankful for this opportunity - the team believing in [him] stepping into Fernando’s car”

    He “had to take care of it, but [he] was also pushing as much as [he] could to show [his] full potential”

    Retired F1 driver turned analyst Paul di Resta feels that “Toto [Wolff] needs to keep morale as high as he can”

    “That motivation, the talks he does after every Grand Prix are important to keep everyone on their toes so they can strike back at Red Bull”

    Red Bull’s Sergio Perez has revealed that he is “not feeling fully comfortable with the car on the softer compound yet”

    Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko agreed that “Perez is still struggling a bit”

    Haas’ Mick Schumacher has said that “the title fight is very exciting for all of [them] to watch. And Max is doing very well”

    Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton has explained that they “always try to get something more out of it, but that usually only makes it worse. So, [he’s] only going to make minimal adjustments”

    His team principal Toto Wolff divulged that “there are not going to be big parts changes”

    “There is one more development that is going to come onto the car in Silverstone, but that has been up the sleeve for a long time”


    Do you see Guanyu Zhou as a future F1 driver?

With billions of potential viewers in the China market, F1 will push for a driver. Would be nice to have a push for a driver from US, maybe Colton Herta if he's not too old already. Would expect he'd be granted a Super License from driving in IndyCar.

So why do you take Max’s engine back to your factory!! If you have nothing to worry about it!! Something is not right about this Honda engine! They have struggled with the engine for years and now they are leaving? They have the fastest engine on the grid!! Same thing as happened to Ferries! They alof a sudden had the fastest engine? and we know why !!! So is Honda doing the same thing!!!!!!!!!!! !! I know F1things can turn just like this!! But all of a sudden they are flying and nobody can catch them?? No sorry the FIA won’t to look into this and find out why!!! Having a small back wing will help! But not for how quick they are down the straights ?! They have always been quick around corners!! And nothing down the straights !! But now because Honda are leaving! They have both!!!!

The secret of Mercedes supremacy for 7 years now we know that it was not Hamilton superior driving skills, but plain cheating and running a car with a lot more power than allowed by rules and regulation. But for 7 long years? Well, the race officials apparently never looked at the blatant problem. Which makes me very suspicious. Don't forget that Mercedes was involved in the cheating Diesel scandal cartel, so we cannot attribute all those wins to superior technology, for if that was the case they could easily have dealt with the Diesels over pollution of the planet. If we have to attribute all those wins to its engineers superior skills, then we have to presume that the hundreds engineers working hard for the competing F1 teams where very simply useless grease monkeys, which I will never believe possible. Another factor that will evidentiate Mercedes superior technological skill false myth is represented by their latest EV cars produced, considered a commercial flop and obliterated in every single significant technological aspect by Tesla cars.

Deja vu' all over again. We have been there before with Christian Horner and 4x championship with Vettel. I am surprised he waited this long to pull the trigger. Hamilton has just expressed the thought of many. There is something going on with their car. We don''t know what. Merc's hegemonistic dominance is making most people look the other way at this time. We will see how long the ingenuity is endured. FIA has to understand that their primary obligation is to protect the integrity of the sport.

Lewis is pretty much a d bag. Wasn’t he saying just a few months ago how he wants the other cars to progress to put on a better show for the fans? I think Lewis is a good driver but he isn’t THAT good. It’s easy to seems so great when you have such a large advantage with your car. Now that the gap is closed all he can say is how red bull must be cheating when he was out qualified by red bull and by mclaren.

It's better than at the beginning of the season when Max couldn't gain 1 inch on Lewis...even under DRS. Now THATS a power advantage. 20 hp it looked like, in Mercs favor Max says the car is on rails. I'll bet thats what George thought about the #44 car last year. Max, in a car thats on rails, with = H.P is something Lewis can't fight (even if his OWN car is also on rails)

Funny , Mercedes were so fast for couple of years , & still are today , that , if any Satellite Teams caught using Mercedes advantageous components to improve their Performance like Mercedes , they would be Penalized! More & more F1 fans noticed the favourism shown to the Mercedes Team by the High Table , so nothing much can be done to enjoy a Level Playing Field in F1 at the moment , that's also making many F1 Fans rooting for the Redbull , McLaren / Aston Martin & Ferrari Teams! Some pissed off F1 Fans just left the F1 scenes for MotoGP! 🌍

Honestly.. HONDA IS FAST.....just look at French race ( I beleive it was) Honda caught up with Hamilton and passed him in the straight with ease. I WAS EVEN LEFT A COMMENT SAYING "it is not max, it is Honda"....from Honda onboard view it looked like Honda had 20km/h more speed...

That was due to Red Bull pulling the 2nd stop and being on fresher tyres. Mercedes did exactly the same thing to Red Bull in Spain, Verstappen couldn't even get close to Bottas on the straight while Hamilton got him when he had some oversteer on the last corner. Honda are still slightly behind but Red Bull run lower wing, Mercedes run higher wing to counter the unstable rear which costs top line speed.

IF they did have a "qualifying mode" then why would they not be more even on pace during the race itself? Instead Max is well ahead and not even looking troubled by Hamilton in the Mercedes at the moment. The RB car is better it's at simple as that, Mercedes have always been so far ahead they have basically abandoned the car for this season and all efforts on to next season's new car.

Its a fact in sports that on a given moment you encounter someone who is stronger , faster of bigger then you. At the moment Redbull and Verstappen is the perfect combination this could change to in the season. Shouting in the race for more power 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 newsflash Lewis partymode is gone.
