Honda: We are now investigating the causes of the two malfunctions

Honda saw how in the first race of the season three of their four cars failed to reach the finish line. The bright spot today was the fine race of Pierre Gasly, who finished seventh with the AlphaTauri.

AlphaTauri had to take care of the points

"The first race of the season ended with three of our cars retiring, which is disappointing. So the only positive is that Gasly drove well to give AlphaTauri some points in their first race", says technical director of Honda Toyoharu Tanabe in an AlphaTauri press release.

Suspicious problem

"For Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, Verstappen was going well from second on the grid, until he had to retire due to an electrical issue. Albon was very unlucky to lose second place in the last few laps, but he was still fighting for points until he also had to retire, due to a suspected PU electrical issue", continued Tanabe.

"At the moment, we are investigating the causes of the two failures. We stay here in Austria for the second round next weekend and in the limited time available we will analyse all our data and try and take countermeasures to ensure we perform more reliably in Round 2", concludes Tanabe.
