McLaren to run Honda for 1st time Friday

Formula 1 teams are allowed “Filming” days during the year and although the runs are limited in distance as well as a demonstration tire (not current spec racing tire), it is an opportunity to do some shake down of a system.

That’s exactly what McLaren will do at Silverstone as they tweeted:

Honda’s return to F1 in the guise of an engine supplier has been a big move for McLaren as they part ways with Mercedes after decades of working together. The new Honda power unit will be married to a B-spec chassis and tested at one of the filming days at Silverstone.

It is a big moment when power unit and chassis come together and actually run. Can’t wait to hear it and see how they get on.
