Horner scolds Hamilton for Honda engine claims

Some of Lewis Hamilton’s recent statements do not comport with “reality”, according to Red Bull team boss Christian Horner. A Mercedes engineer, meanwhile, was quoted by Auto Motor und Sport as admitting that Red Bull is half a second per lap clear. “I think it will be difficult to beat Red Bull,” Mercedes’ Hamilton admitted. Hamilton claimed at Paul Ricard last weekend that Honda’s freshly-installed engines were obviously more powerful, giving Red Bull a further 3 tenth boost on the straights. But his boss, Toto Wolff, is back-pedalling on that claim, agreeing with Red Bull that power gains like that are not possible with a homologated engine.
