  • McLaren to race new Honda engine in Austria

McLaren is expecting to make a step forward at this weekend's Austrian Grand Prix after engine supplier Honda confirmed both cars would race with its upgraded "Spec Three" power unit.

The unit provided a welcome boost of power when it was tested in free practice in Baku by Fernando Alonso.

"We have proceeded with the mapping back at the factory utilising the data we collected, and we are going to bring the Spec 3 for both drivers this weekend".

Alonso endured a miserable start to the year thanks to a lack of both reliability and performance from Honda's power unit, leaving him without points and just one finish from the opening seven races.

"At the previous round in Azerbaijan, we were able to bank our first points of the year and I think it brought some brightness into our team", said Honda F1 chief Yusuke Hasegawa.

"We were able to confirm some progress in terms of the power output", he said in a team preview of the race.

Honda's failure to introduce the upgrade two races previously in Canada triggered highly critical comments from McLaren management and fuelled speculation that the partnership was heading for divorce.

"I think we have some improvements in our competitiveness and I am looking forward to seeing our performance in Austria", he concluded.

"We've also got a couple of useful steps coming on the vehicle, including - hopefully - Honda's revised Spec 3 power unit, which I tried during Friday practice in Azerbaijan".
