Mate . Honda got already time enough to figure out what the issues of MAX's PU could be ..
Don't forget MAX had also a DNF in Monza by PU failure !
That are 2 DNF in a row in 2 race weekends by PU failures !

Last year he had 3-4 times anti-stall issues.
This while every point matters in the WDC !
Last weekend one of the issues was the overheating of the PU , that sounds like a big issue to me . As we know this can damage the PU completely !
HONDA is running behind the facts, regarding the PU issues...

i'm no so sure that was the case with Seb wanting retirement just a cry of desperation at the right moment I doubt Seb is 'suffering' that much, he's made of sterner stuff. His interest in that 2004 SF racer was funny saying it was too expensive...right Seb, make an offer!

Unacceptable for Red Bull !!!

"There we heard him complaining on the onboard radio about a strange noise in the engine and that the engine could not run stably. We also saw a bit of panic in the garage. Then his super-mechanics tried to fix it, but if you look at the start you can see the problems," says Doornbos. Verstappen did make a very good start, but that didn't end well in the end.

"Max was already complaining about the engine and Kimi Raikkonen finally torpedoed him out of the race. That's not even the worst of it. The most annoying thing is that you indicate that you have a problem with the same power unit as in Monza, with which there were also problems. They didn't change anything at the time, which indicates that they had solved the problems. But now it turns out to be exactly the same problem and that's actually unacceptable for a top team like Red Bull", concludes Doornbos.

I hate to drag it out but I smell something fishy, if Horner thinks that the problem righted itself from Monza and decided use it again then that itself is suspect.Are there other factors at work here?? The drivers are the last to know some things at Ferrari...

I'm looking to find more answers regarding the failure of the HONDA PU .
But still ..Can't find anything . Yesterday Tanabe-Honda said : There are actually 2 issues .And the issue isn't small ..
Van der Garde said :The RB's looked faster , but "Honda has lost reliability for speed"

As for us : It remains a mystery

Whether the reported overheating at Monza has any relevance to the second issue is the question.A new cooler thermostat may have been fitted but was the damage already done to the other (possibly electrical) component/s.

yeah i ve watched Max's formation lap.. car was sounding a bit jerky even on mid revs like rear wheels were bouncing but obviously they were no bouncing it was different than before or the way i remember..

but here comes a question then.. Albon never had PU issue in Monza or in Mugello.. no overheating as well.. so either he has a lower and safer lower power engine map or he is using bigger coolers thus hurts his times as well.. so Albon already has a slower car than Max powerwise as well?

Well my friend there's plenty of time for RB/Honda to sort Max's engine basically an almost certain fresh PU,this time with no negatives.
How much more power to keep the short fishing line on HAM Tanabe has to measure up more accurately what can get Max to the end of the race with a decent amount of power with not overwhelming the ancillaries of the 16.

3 DNF in 9 races . By this MAX was 33% out of the game .

If HAM didn't won Silverstone 1 on his square tires and MAX didn't got 3 PU failures ...
The story would be completely different in WDC ranking .

HONDA screwed it up . They were not ready enough to fool the Mercs .

By this given it's always the same old story in a Merc vs Merc race .
On the other hand : Toto would never allow that BOT could race vs HAM . As we know Toto is the button master from behind the pitwall .
And grandma's racecraft s@cks anyway...

So , actually is HAM the only racing driver and the rest is just there for the show ...
If MAX can't fight in a real car vs HAM with equal machinery ! F1 will die soon !
If HONDA isn't able to improve the damn PU . We can put this season already on repeat for 2021 ...
And who wants to see that again ?

Your logic is comical. Excuses and more excuses.

Redbull knew Honda’s unreliability and still went for it.

Comical excuses ? Well excuse me mate !
This isn't regarding excuses . The cause isn't MAX but HONDA !
HONDA can better return to Japan mate . That's how it looks like .
And as you know , Renault was nothing better... And Ferrari is a joke without the Jet-Mode !

Facts mate ! Facts...

I know,it's all a big swiz with some being fooled saying that hamster is the best due to racemanship even 'footwork' lol It's gone on too long now,a lapdog teammate with the political cover now to mask what really is happening.

It's elementary my dear Watson.

^I would have thought it was obvious my friend, the Honda PU is being overstretched powering Max's car being he's the only challenger to Merc while the rest like Ricciardo can only joke and put on a circus show but all they have is jellybeans to challenge
