McLaren technical Director Tim Goss in an interview to the official website of the McLaren confirmed that Honda peritonektomie the powertrain ahead of the new season.
Such a step became possible due to the abolition of the system of tokens, and now the new power plant Honda was very similar to the successful concept of the engine of Mercedes.
“The system of tokens, severely limiting the development of engines the last two seasons, was finally abolished, said Goss. — So we were able to 2017, to change the design and layout of the engine, to obtain the increase of power.
The experience of the last two seasons influenced the process of developing the new engine, but new engine has been redesigned specifically for this season.”
