More changes at Honda
Honda Racing F1 was hoping to be able to settle down now that a new design team has been put together but our sources in Brackley have confirmed that a number of key engineers are in the process of leaving the team to move to Red Bull Racing where Honda's former technical director Geoff Willis is now putting together the people he wants around him. The major player believed to be on the move is Honda's deputy technical director Gary Savage, a former McLaren engineer who looks after all of Honda's F1 production. There are expected to be others as well and we hear that the team's head of composite production has already resigned.
There have also been changes at Red Bull to make way for the newcomers.
Honda will thus need to go back to the market to find new people.
