Honda are moving the right direction in terms of development

Franz Tost believes Honda are moving in the right direction as Red Bull and Toro Rosso continue their partnership which has seen both teams secure podiums in 2019 as well as two wins for Max Verstappen.

Toro Rosso tested the Honda power unit in 2018 ahead of Red Bull's change this season. Expectations were mixed for Red Bull but the partnership has been fruitful so far with Max Verstappen winning in Austria and Germany as well as Daniil Kvyat finishing third at the Hockenheimring for Toro Rosso in crazy conditions.

With the teams now on summer break Franz Tost has been reflecting on their progress with Honda and admitted things are looking good.

"The fact of having two teams to supply like Red Bull and Toro Rosso is one of the positive aspects that allowed Honda to achieve these results in such a short time," Tost said in an interview with F1Technical.net.

"Obviously there are still many aspects to be improved, but I am sure that they will have a successful future in Formula 1, because they have shown that they know how to design good engines."
