Honda improving faster than McLaren claims Merhi
Former F1 driver Roberto Merhi thinks McLaren’s engine supplier is making more progress than the British team so far in 2016.
Honda had a woeful return to F1 last year but Spaniard Merhi, who raced last season for Manor, said he has been impressed with the steps forward taken in 2016.
“In my opinion, Honda is progressing faster than expected,” he told the Spanish sports daily Marca. “In Monaco, where engine power does not play such an important role, it seemed to be that McLaren is inferior to the leaders in the effectiveness of the chassis.”
