Honda will attempt to use its 2007-specification engine at China’s Shanghai race next month … plan to introduce the updated 2.4 litre V8 at Monza backfired spectacularly when Anthony Davidson suffered two failures in free practice last Friday.
Team boss Nick Fry told Speed TV that the cause of the Monza failures were manufacturing errors.

At Monza, after reverting to the older V8 specification, Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello logged the second and third slowest speeds of the entire grand prix field.

Who says persistence does not pay ! But let’s hope it pays Honda.
