Honda was quick to react over the second retirement in a row by Max Verstappen. The Red Bull Racing driver dropped out again at Mugello with motor problems. Honda immediately went to work to find out what caused the technical malfunction.
"Of course we're very happy that Alex (Albon, ed.) took his first podium, but it's a huge disappointment that Max had a problem with his power source", confesses technical director Toyoharu Tanabe. "It's especially disappointing because Max showed early in the weekend that the Red Bull had the pace to keep up with Mercedes."
"We are already analysing the problem at the factory. We will carry out a major investigation to find the cause of the problem". Tanabe doesn't want this to happen again this season. The goal is to be in good shape in the second half of the season." (Photo: Red Bull Content Pool / Getty Images)
