Honda is making progress in Formula One this season. The company is ready to supply more teams with engines in F1 by 2018. FIA is pressuring on Japanese carmaker to become a customer-supplier, that means the automaker has to supply engines for more teams.
When asked by the Spanish daily Marca, if it is ready to supply a customer, Honda's Yusuke Hasegawa said, "Not right now, but by the end of next season we could be ready for that option."
He also said there are a plenty of enquiries from other teams, but no serious negotiations.
Toro Rosso looked very competitive in Singapore, despite using a year-old Ferrari.
Hasegawa stated, "I have not analysed the data," Hasegawa said, "but if it's true, then it means that the Toro Rosso chassis is very good.
"We believe that the Honda engine is a little better than the old Ferrari engine, so I guess the chassis was better adapted to the track."
According to Swiss newspaper Blick, the second Honda team is Sauber.
