"Honda has made progress"
7 May 2007 – Senior Technical Director of the Honda Racing F1 Team, Shuhei Nakamoto, says that progress has been made in the three weeks since the Bahrain GP last month. With the European F1 season beginning this weekend in Barcelona, the team is working hard to turn around a disappointing start to the 2007 campaign.
"In preparation for the Spanish Grand Prix," says Nakamoto, "we have had a four-day test in Barcelona this week to evaluate various specifications, particularly the latest aerodynamic parts for the RA107. We had gathered a great deal of data and believe that we have found a good set-up combination and made progress with the aerodynamics. The car seems to be working better with the tyres now and our pace and reliability is steady. So a small step forward but there is much work still to do."
