Pierre Gasly is 'really happy' with Honda's development

Pierre Gasly says that he can see the improvements that Honda have made. The French driver finished Tuesdays testing session 2nd with a 1.17.715 suggesting that Honda may be able to make Red Bull more competitive when the season starts. 

Gasly has been promoted to Red Bull after only one season at Toro Rosso last year. The Frenchman will team up with Max Verstappen as they hope to compete against Ferrari and Mercedes for the championship.  

"I’m really happy [with the Honda power unit]," Gasly said to FormulaSpy. "I can really see the improvements they’ve made through the winter.”

“The reliability has been amazing so far so, fingers crossed, we can stay like this for the next three days and then through the season. In terms of performance, that seems to be improved as well – I’m really happy with the job they have done.”

It was thought that Red Bull's move away from Renault would set them back as they developed with Honda. However, results from testing could suggest that Red Bull are closer to the top teams than the initially may have thought.
