Honda to get the most out of engine: 'Must get the most out of it'

Toyoharu Tanabe sees the battle between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton getting more and more fierce. With his team, Tanabe tries to do everything to give Verstappen as much power as possible in these last races.

For the first time in years Formula 1 is really exciting. Honda has managed to close the gap to Mercedes and that is putting pressure on the German brand. Mercedes still seems to have a lead on the straight, but it is much less than in previous years.

Honda continues to fight on

This ensures that Verstappen can finally compete for the world title in 2021. The Dutchman leads the championship with six races to go, but the difference with Hamilton is also only six points. This means that Red Bull Racing, Honda and Verstappen will have to pull out all the stops to win the world title.

''Max took back the lead in the championship after his second place at the Turkish Grand Prix. If you look at the battles this year, you can see that we are closer to Hamilton. As usual, we're doing everything we can with the technical team to get the most out of the engine and respond to unexpected circumstances,'' Tanabe said opposite as-web.jp.
