Honda needs to extract more horses from its Formula 1 engine

By Faiming_low on 18 May 2015 in Motorsports, Formula 1

Attached Image According to Grand Prix Times, Honda plans to work on improving the power of its Formula 1 engine. The company, which supplies only to McLaren, entered the sport only this year and has some work cut out for it. With less development time and experience as compared to its competitors, they must make sure they can identify the weakness of the engine and choose areas which are more in need of improving.
 
Motorsport boss Yasuhisa Arai was quoted saying the engine lacks horsepower and he aims to improve the combustion efficiency. When questioned what needs to be changed, he said the combustion concept needs to be looked at and parts like the turbocharger or the camshaft could be swapped out for better ones.
 
That said, it is not all bad news for the guys at Honda, with lesser reliability issues as the season goes on. Neither Jenson Button or Fernando Alonso experienced a problem during the Spanish GP, or during the in-season test which followed.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Hmmm. I don't spot any VTEC logo. :/

 

Maybe they can do a VTEC-F1 technology out?

LOL they don't need VTEC in F1. The engine should run at full lift all the time.
