Honda provides first look of F1 power unit

They’re back and now it’s real: the much expected Honda Formula One engine may still be under development, but the manufacturer decided to use this weekend’s Japanese GP to offer a sneak peak of its 2015 power unit.

TOKYO, Japan, October 1, 2014 – Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today gave the world a first look at an image of the power unit currently in development for the 2015 FIA Formula One (F1) World Championship.

During the 2014 FIA Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix, Honda will offer a sneak preview film of the F1 power unit under development including the engine revving sound at the Honda stand at Suzuka Circuit. This video will be shared with the public via the Honda website and social media from October 6, 2014.

“There is obviously a lot of work behind the scenes with our new partner for next year,” McLaren team boss Eric Boullier said recently in Singapore.

“We have not exactly defined when and where we will test first, to be clear about some discussions and rumours. There is a lot of work going through and, to be honest, as per the original schedule, everything is fine so far.”
