HONDA INTRODUCES ANOTHER POWER UNIT UPGRADE
Ahead of the British Grand Prix, Honda spent another two engine development tokens on its internal combustion engine (ICE) intake: an upgrade that is aimed at increasing combustion efficiency. The Japanese manufacturer had already used a pair of tokens to introduce a new spec of turbocharger in Canada last month. McLaren-Honda racing director Eric Boullier told F1i at Silverstone that the British team was satisfied with the evolution, as the promised results and gains were delivered.
