Red Bull’s Max Verstappen begins Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix as a result of a punishment for excess engine use from the back of the grid.
Honda’s newest’ wills operate Spec Four’ motor in Monza, which will carry him over the allowed variety of motor parts for a period.
The Pierre Gasly of toro Rosso will run the engine .
Honda F1 technical manager Toyoharu Tanabe explained:”We believe they can still race strongly on Sunday.”
The Spec Four engine was run by the 2 teams’ drivers, Red Bull’s Alexander Albon and the Daniil Kvyat of Toro Rosso, at the Grand Prix, even though Albon reverted to a engine for the race.
Tanabe included:”We gathered useful information in Spa, which we’ve used to make adjustments to power-unit configurations and calibration in prep for this race.
“We will try to increase the capacity of both Spec Four and expect to find another positive result, keeping the momentum we gained in Spa.”
Honda refused to reveal whether the motorists could use the motor .
Verstappen spoke regarding the likelihood of carrying an engine punishment at Monza, also said he was unconcerned about that.
“I believe it could be right to overtake,” he explained. “Even in case you start in the back that I do not think that it’s a big deal.
“We all know Ferrari will be really quick now, and if you begin from the back you probably won’t catch the top . Everything behind that I think that it’s possible to catch up with.”
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner stated the performance of the Spec Four engine was”encouraging”, including:”Progress is being made and [the engine] delivering what is expected”
Red Bull have taken the motors at this stage only since they would like to make certain they’re after Italy in the best possible place for Singapore the race.
Honda can be decided to get as strong a showing as possible in Japan in October at its house race.
