Honda F1 chief tweaks role in new Red Bull, Toro Rosso structure

Honda F1 technical director Toyoharu Tanabe has his role tweaked ahead of providing power units to both Red Bull and Toro Rosso for 2019 with a chief engineer reporting to him from each team.
Since Honda’s return to F1 in 2015, initially with McLaren before the switch to Toro Rosso last year, the Japanese engine manufacturer faces a new challenge of delivering power units to two teams for 2019 after securing a deal with Red Bull.
Tanabe also confirmed both Red Bull and Toro Rosso will receive equal specification power units from Honda, despite the Italian squad confirming some non-listed parts will be of an older specification, in order to streamline Honda’s doubled-up efforts in 2019.
