Too much electronics in the Honda engine? ''Those are painful things''

The Grand Prix of Tuscany didn't last very long for Max Verstappen. Due to a problem with his Honda engine, the Dutchman was compromised at the start and was knocked out of the race. However, this is now the third time that there are problems with the Japanese engine.

Verstappen had himself with a third place of a good starting position for the race, but on the drive to the grid things went wrong. Verstappen complained about a problem with his engine and where the team strongly denied this, things turned out wrong at the start. Verstappen dropped out and probably would have dropped out even without the crash.

Too much electronics at Honda?

''That's what the Japanese are all about, putting so much electronics on that engine. It's a little thing that makes that engine not work. It's not broken, but something probably goes wrong with a cable or a sensor. It's painful though,'' says Olav Mol at F1 aan Tafel.

Where, according to Helmut Marko, Red Bull Racing was able to fight for the pole from the abolition of qualifying mode, the opposite turns out to be true. ''Since that Party Mode has been abolished, Honda has not yet been able to fine-tune the engine. As a result, these kinds of problems are coming to the surface'', concludes Ziggo Sport's commentator.
