Honda intrigued by the new F1 rules

Published

Arai_Honda_CinaYasuhisa Arai, head of Honda Motorsports, has appeared in the FIA Friday press conference, this time sitting in side of Whiting and Fry. We recall that Honda will participate in fact only in 2015, as an engineer of the McLaren. Obviously, this does not detract from the interest that the presence of the representative of the Japanese manufacturer might have, indeed.

“One of the major reasons for our decision was the new regulation introduced this year and that the various environment,” Arai explained.

“I mean green technologies in the new Formula 1 power unit, as well as the total energy management are both very challenging and significant.

“The new regulation encourages each power unit supplier to pursue the ultimate combustions efficiency and high pressure direct injections, such as many, many new technology.

“Thus the challenge is to convert each unit of gasoline into energy and this is expected to be reflected on the huge production mode. That’s the reason why.”

“For 2015, McLaren is our only customer,” Arai confirmed. “I don’t think about the future, because we want to concentrate on next season.

“If teams want to use our engine or power unit, we can deliver after year 2016 but right now there are no plans.”

“That, we will open June this year,” he said. “Now still under construction but that factory is to do the engine maintenance for the races and rebuilding the Formula 1 engine and also to go to the race-track for the trackside service. That’s Milton Keynes.”
