Red Bull hopes Verstappen’s engine can be saved

Red Bull and Honda have not given up hope that Max Verstappen’s damaged engine from the 51G Silverstone crash can be “saved”. “The engine was no longer usable but we will carry out further investigations to see if it can be saved,” said Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko. It’s very frustrating, also for Honda, because it’s not a reliability issue but due to accidents that we did not cause,” he said. Honda’s technical boss Toyoharu Tanabe says the Japanese marque was actually “very lucky” to discover the cracks on Verstappen’s Silverstone engine prior to qualifying and the race in Hungary.
