Latest Honda F1 Upgrade Inspired By Jet Engine Tech
Honda’s latest Formula 1 upgrade was inspired by technical expertise from the company’s jet-engine programme, which has oiled the wheels of significant technology steps for Red Bull’s engine partner.
The spec 3 engine intorudced at last weekend’s F1 French Grand Prix features upgrades primarily arudn the turbo and internal combustion engine. The personeel of Honda’s F1 research development have been working with their jet counterparts for two years, and this collaboration paved the way for a major breakthrough with the reliability of Honda’s MGU-H in the automaker’s Spec 3 engine introduced last year.
