Honda Formula 1 Engine Details:

  • Honda fires up its new Formula 1 engine for the first time
  • The engine is being developed for Honda’s return in 2015
  • Honda and McLaren form new team

If Honda’s announcement that it would return to Formula 1 for the 2015 season under a joint project with McLaren was music to your ears, then a recording of its new F1 engine may have the same effect.

Manabu Nishimae, President of Honda Motor Europe Ltd, commented, "It is exciting to hear the cry of our new born Formula One engine for the first time. Our engineers are working hard to develop the engine and we are all looking forward to the start of the 2015 season."

New 2014 technical regulations facilitated Honda’s return to Formula 1, providing the Japanese car manufacturer with an opportunity to make further technological progress in areas such as the internal combustion engine and energy management technologies such as hybrid systems.

It will be exciting to see how the 2015 season unfolds with Honda’s new generation of engineers experiencing the thrills of F1.
