Honda to Completely Revamp Engine for 2017 F1 Season
After a very dismal last two seasons, Honda has high hopes for 2017 with a new Formula 1 engine that will feature a revised architecture and a new layout. The relationship between Honda and McLaren will remain intact for the upcoming season as both organizations strive to close the performance gap.
Goss said: “The token system that was applied to engine development for the past few seasons has been discontinued. For 2017, the Honda engine architecture and layout have been altered to serve both for performance and packaging needs.
“The new power unit takes much of the learning from the past two seasons, but has been specifically redesigned for this season.”
