Formula One is no longer just about one driver: this year, it has been a team, and now the Italian marque is teaming up with the world’s top sports car manufacturer to build a Formula One car.
In an exclusive interview with Al Jazeera, Honda Racing Team Manager Alberto Salazar said that Honda’s partnership with Ferrari will see the development of the next generation of Formula One and will help to improve the competitiveness of the sport in the world.
“We’ve already worked with Ferrari on the new 2018 car,” Salazar told Al Jazeera.
“We’re going to start working with the teams now.”
Salazar said the team had been looking at the potential of the new Formula 1 cars in terms of the technology that they can bring to the field.
“They are all of the same standards,” he said.
“There are no differences, they all are very similar.”
In the meantime, Salazar has confirmed that the first three cars to be produced by Honda will be the F1s first entry in the new turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
The team will be building the cars from scratch, using the latest components, such as a carbon fibre chassis, which will allow for a much higher aerodynamic coefficient, making them much lighter than the current F1 cars.
Salaron also confirmed that Honda will not be producing the new F1 car on a daily basis.
Instead, the team will build the cars using the powertrain, using what the team has learned in developing the engines.
“This is a different project than we’ve done before,” Salazon said.
With all this information coming to light, Salaz believes that the development program is only beginning.
“I believe that we will see more development of this technology, we will be able to develop more powerful engines,” he added.
“I believe this is going to happen very quickly.”
The team has been working with Ferrari since 2007, and has worked with the Italian manufacturer on various projects.
This is the first time that the two companies will be working together in Formula One.
Honda and Ferrari are the only two teams to have entered the FIA World Endurance Championship.
Formula One’s new turbocharger engines were introduced at the end of 2015, and the teams have been working on the technology ever since.
However, there are a number of differences between the FCA’s turbocharged engines and the current engine.
The Ferrari-Honda F1 turbocharged engine is a two-stroke, three-cylinders engine, with an output of around 250kW, which means that it can reach 100kW maximum power.
On the other hand, the Honda-built engines are much lighter, which can reach just 20kW.
But the Ferrari-made engines are all turbocharged, and produce around 500kW each.
This means that they have a greater potential to produce power than the Honda ones.
Despite this, there is a lot of debate over whether or not the Ferrari engines can compete with the current turbocharged F1 engines.
“What the team is doing is very different,” Salazer said.
“For example, the current engines have the same engine, but the combustion chamber is different.
We have the engine that produces all the power, and that is the Ferrari engine.””
For example with the F40 engines, we have a turbochargers engine, and there are no problems with the combustion.
We have the engine that produces all the power, and that is the Ferrari engine.”
Salazar confirmed that his team has received numerous requests for help with development of its own engine, so the team can use what they have learned.
“One of the most important aspects of the F30 engine is the compression ratio,” he explained.
“The F30 is very difficult to develop, because there is not a lot that is known about it.
To make the F31, we need to develop a compression ratio of 3.5:1.
It is hoped that the Honda F1 will be around for another decade, and Salazar believes that he and the team are on the right track.””
But in the future, we want to have a compressor that is much better than the F28 one, so we can have a lot more power.”
It is hoped that the Honda F1 will be around for another decade, and Salazar believes that he and the team are on the right track.
“The F1 is not just a technology that is developed by the team,” Salaz said.
