Hasegawa takes new role as Honda F1 restructures

Honda is starting its new partnership with Scuderia Toro Rosso with a restructuring, as Honda head of F1 project Yusuke Hasegawa (pictured above) will take on a new role within the Japanese manufacturer and his previous title, head of Formula 1 project, will be eliminated.

Instead, under the new structure Hasegawa's former role will be split. An operating officer in charge of HRD Sakura will oversee research and development and the overall operation of races and testing, while current Honda Performance Development senior manager and race team engineer Toyoharu Tanabe will assume the newly created role of F1 Technical Director.

Hasegawa, who will not continue in the F1 project, will take on the title of executive chief engineer.

"In the past, the Head of F1 Project assumed responsibility in both technological development and directing the team at the spot of racing," said Katsuhide Moriyama, Honda Motor Co.'s Chief Officer for Brand and Communication Operations. "By separating these areas of responsibility, we will evolve our structure so that both the development team and racing/testing team can assume their respective responsibilities more speedily.

"By ensuring both the development team and racing team soundly fulfill their respective roles, Honda will continue its challenges so that fans can enjoy seeing Toro Rosso-Honda competing at the top level without further delay. Thank you for your continuous support."

Hasegawa recently said Honda will take on more leadership in its partnership with Toro Rosso following its difficult years with McLaren, with the primary challenge of getting the power unit installed properly in the 2018 car within a limted time frame.

"We need to make many modifications, which is a big job, especially in this limited amount of time," he told Honda Racing's website. "Honda and Toro Rosso – from both sides – are doing a very good job.

"We've been the ones making the majority of requests so far, but it's fair to say this will be a more equal partnership than it was with McLaren in terms of leadership. And that's not just because of the size of the team. Obviously Honda as a company is huge but we had little recent F1 experience – so from that point of view McLaren was still leading us. That won't be the same with Toro Rosso.

"We are working quickly to swap teams. We have to prepare things before February, so it will be a very busy winter. Development is ongoing on the power unit. It will remain the same power unit concept from this year, so we are able to use the current one as the starting point."

"A new challenge and making new relationships with people is always exciting. From an experience point of view, for this era of Honda, it will be the first time we have changed team and we'll get a better understanding of what a normal situation is.

Tanabe, who began his career at Honda in 1984, sandwiched F1 engineering roles with Gerhard Berger (1990-92 at McLaren) and Jenson Button (2003-07 at BAR and Honda) between a 10-year stint as a race engineer researching IndyCar engines (1993-2003).

Toro Rosso technical director James Key says the switch from Renault to Honda Formula 1 engines for 2018 is not straightforward because of the way the two power units are designed.

The different locations of the turbo compressors mean that fitting the Honda is not a straightforward swap into a car that was originally being designed around the French engine. McLaren faces the same challenge in reverse.

"They are completely different," Key told Autosport. "It's a very nicely packaged engine, but the whole power unit is a different architecture.

"It doesn't drop into the same space. There's quite a bit of car layout work that has to be done to adapt to it."

Key says it was important not to waste the aero work that had already been done for 2018.

"We try and stick to a rule that, if a car has already been in a development process for a while, not to upset any major items such as aero surfaces and that sort of thing, so we're not starting from scratch in too many areas," he said.

"We've adapted the car under the skin as best we can, and that's led to quite a different approach to the chassis design, to the way the gearbox works, and so on.

"We've carried over the concepts and developed them further from this year's car."

The gearbox, which is designed by Toro Rosso but uses internals from Red Bull Technology, will also be new, and shorter than its predecessor.

"Its layout and its size is different for this engine, compared to what we have this year," Key added.

"I think the concept is the same, but the architecture is different.

"Some internals will carry over, some will be changed, some will be bespoke to the STR box. Otherwise it will be pretty close to what we've been running."

Key insists that the Faenza team does much more of its own development than is generally believed.

"There's a lot more going on at STR than people think," he said. "People don't know STR, it's really frustrating.

"Although it makes a lot of sense to join together [with Red Bull] where you can, we've got our own aero department in Bicester, with our own windtunnel, and that's entirely independent because it has to be legally.

"The entire design of the car is done in Faenza - the only bit of the car that comes from RBT is the gearbox internals which are jointly designed, because there are often things that we specifically need."

Honda will have its current Formula 1 engine available as a back-up plan if there are problems with its 2018 specification.

 

:ajme: Ono cisto zato sto je u 2017. Hondin motor savrseno funkcionisao...

Honda’s outgoing Formula 1 project leader Yusuke Hasegawa believes the move to a three-engine limit in 2018 is “unreasonable”.

 

S obzirom koliko su im pouzdani motori Hondi bi limit od negde 15-tak bio potaman...

Toro Rosso is looking to avoid some of the pitfalls of the ill-fated McLaren-Honda partnership.

With McLaren dumping its works backing after three woeful years, Honda power is now moving to the Red Bull junior team.

And boss Franz Tost said Toro Rosso is determined that the very different Japanese culture is understood by the staff at the team's Italian HQ.

"For a better understanding of Japanese culture, seminars and workshops are being taken up with great interest by our employees," he told Speed Week.

"We all know that Japan has its own culture and it's one of the really exciting challenges actually to synchronise that with our own culture," Austrian Tost added.

"If we were not convinced that it can be achieved, we would never have gone ahead with this project."

Although the decision to switch to Honda was taken late, Tost insists Toro Rosso has enough time to integrate the very different engine for 2018.

"Actually an early decision like this is rare," he insisted.

"Let me remind you that the change to Ferrari two years ago was decided in December, but we managed to do it in a timely manner. The use of our own transmission simplifies the process," Tost said.

Otherwise, Tost said being the works Honda team "will help" in finding sponsors, but that the existing basic team structure will remain unchanged.

"The number of employees is a healthy basis for a successful future," he said.

As for 2018, he said: "The realistic goal for us is a place in the midfield.

"Generally, I do not expect big changes. I'm still expecting Mercedes but of course I'm hoping that Red Bull and Ferrari fight for the championship. And if I'm honest, I hope more for Red Bull than for Ferrari."

The word on the street around Bicester is that Scuderia Toro Rosso has axed its head of aerodynamics, Australian Brendan Gilhome. The logic behind this appears to be that the team did not make sufficient in-season progress in 2017. To be fair, Carlos Sainz finished fourth in one of the cars, as late as Singapore before he departed to Renault. Daniil Kvyat was destabilised for most of the season and Pierre Gasly and Brendan Hartley were both still learning, so the results at the end of the year are not perhaps the best criterion to use. Gilhome is an F1 veteran, dating back to 2005 when he joined Sauber from the automotive consulting firm FKFS in Stuttgart. A PhD from Monash University in Melbourne, he spent five years with Sauber before joining Mercedes in 2010, where he was a principal aerodynamicist. Prior to his departure to join STR in 2013, he did the primary aerodynamic development of the 2014 Mercedes, which won the World Championship in the hands of Lewis Hamilton. Lured to STR by James Key, with whom he had worked at Sauber. The STR technical office in Bicester, where it has a wind tunnel, now employs 140 staff and has rented more space to fit everyone in. The team’s budgets have increased significantly but the results have not, despite team boss Franz Tost’s annual speech that the team can finish fifth in the Constructors’ Championship. Last year the team was its habitual seventh.

The word is that Gilhome will be replaced in his role by his deputy Ben Mallock, who has been with the team since 2012, having joined from Mercedes. He was a Red Bull aerodynamicist for four years before moving to Brawn GP early in 2009.

Toro Rosso has been enjoying the design benefits of having an exclusive partnership with Honda for 2018, according to team principal Franz Tost.

Honda opted to stay in Formula 1 and supply Toro Rosso for the next three years after ending its partnership with McLaren early, with its former team taking over from Toro Rosso as a Renault customer. Tost says he has been happy with the early stages of working with the Japanese manufacturer and the team has already noticed the benefits of not having to deal with the demands of other customers.

"There will be a big change with Honda," Tost told RACER. "We are very much looking forward to working together with them. We started in the last month of last season with a couple of meetings and I must say that the cooperation is working really well. I am also convinced that they will come up with a reliable and powerful engine.

"I think that Toro Rosso can only profit out of this cooperation because we are the only team this year that is provided with these engines, which means we can be concentrated on each other.

"We saw it already when we needed to design everything to fit the engine into the car, we don't need to ask others for any compromises, we can do it like we wanted. So I am more than optimistic regarding Honda."

The Honda deal marks Toro Rosso's first works works partnership; something that Tost said represents an exciting milestone for the team. "Yes, it's something new and it's something special for Toro Rosso," he said. "I hope that we can use this chance in the best possible way to improve our performance."
