Honda thank fans for support and target more success before the end of the year

Honda picked up their first race win since 2006 at the Austrian Grand Prix last weekend and it is fair to say that they celebrated well. However, Red Bull's engine suppliers know that they need to get back to working hard to ensure that they can win again this season. The engine has been incredibly reliable for both Red Bull and Toro Rosso and the Japanese company will look to improve their power output for the Silverstone Grand Prix. 

Honda boss Toyoharu Tanabe is pleased to have had a successful weekend but knows that Honda needs to keep improving to compete with Ferrari and Mercedes for the rest of the season. 

"Honda has not done this alone and so we want to acknowledge the contribution of our outside suppliers," said Tanabe to Motorsport.com. "This win is also a way of saying thank you to all our fans, all over the world, for their continued support. We have been back in this sport since 2015, but today feels like a new beginning.

"While we can enjoy the celebrations for a short while, we must get back to work as soon as possible, because we still need to close our performance gap to the quickest teams."

Red Bull are comfortably third in the constructor's championship and will be hoping to take the fight to Ferrari over the next few races for second position.
