Torro Rosso Honda is a done deal as McLaren take over a Renault supply. Are we going to see STR prop up the bottom of the grid or will Honda sort their motors and produce a Mercedes beater for next season?

I believe that some of Honda's problems are that in the car the engine creates a lot of vibration (that Honda aren't seeing on their dyno testing), which may explain why some or much depending on which side you are on, of the work on power and reliablity is not producing the results in the car that Honda are seeing in their testing. We may recall that some of the initial problems with the RBR Renault turbo engine was the very tight packaging that Newey designed that caused failures that Renault hadn't seen in their dyno testing either. So the timing of the deal is good and Honda will have to work very closely with TR to make sure the packaging is right as it seems to be a lot more critical with the current engine regs and proliferation of electroncs that need accomodating and not overheating.

So the *Minardi* Honda deal is back on.

I remember when (Mugen) Honda dumped Minardi for Ligier at the 12 hour 22 years ago.

Alonso's current manager, Flavio was the evil genius behind that bit of shenanigans.

So that's my fun facts for today.

Will this be the first time Minardi/Toro Rosso have had a works engine deal?

Appears Minardi's first F1 adventure was with a works deal - the Motori Moderni Tipo 615-90 1.5 V6t.

Also the only team to run Brian Harts' 830 3.0 V8 in 1994 but may have just been cheaper supply.

Fun Fact - also the first team in modern F1 times to use customer Ferrari engines, in 1991.
