How can Honda get it so right.....

In the Indycar series, yet get it so wrong in F1??? I know we're talking differing requirements, but surely the basics are pretty similar. A 1.6 Lt turbo, vs a 2.2 Lt twin turbo, something must be similar somewhere. Am happy for the propeller heads to tell me different. It just surprises me that they haven't even thought to grab somebody from the U.S engine dept and dragged them over to Japan.


  • Maybe it's the whole Hybrid requirement? Or do they have that in Indy too?
  • Seems like they read this Forum (and your post, oznomad)
  • SHIT!!!!! Maybe they read the Forza page!! No Hybrid in Indycar, and some of the problem at least seems to be connected to the inability to fully deploy the battery power, but I thought a large chunk of the drama has been connected to the ICE. Fair chance I'm wrong, and am happy to be corrected if I am. But you would think that somebody from the Indycar program would've been bought in from the get go.
  • Alonso in the final qualifying shootout for Indy. Can't remember when he was in the position in F1 for the last time :)
  • Alonso starting 5th. Let's not say anything more....
  • Actually: What I'm saying is, where can I watch it?
  • I watched the qualifying lap. It was scary. That sport has no margin, no margin whatsoever. It is F1 1970.
  • Yup, precisely why Jenson said he wouldn't do it + 'Two of my (childhood) friends have died on ovals'. - Dan & Justin.
  • Fuckin'Honda....Alonso could really make it.....

    BTW what about the Zidane heade by Seb to Lewis? Anyway it will remain an iconic moment of the sport hahaha
