Albon explains why he won't have Honda upgrade in France

Albon explains why he won't have Honda upgrade in France

Alexander Albon has explained that Toro Rosso's reticence to have two cars serving penalties at the French Grand Prix was behind the decision to deny him Honda's upgraded engine. Daniil Kvyat, and both Red Bull drivers, will take on the new engine in Le Castellet.

It is reported that the new engine will provide an extra 10 brake horsepower, although Kvyat will be battling a grid penalty.

If Albon had taken the new ICE it would have been his fourth of the year, like Kvyat, and the Thai driver says he is unsure when he will take on the upgrade, which will also give him a grid drop.

Asked how much of a benefit the new engine will provide, Albon said: "It's hard to say until we start comparing them tomorrow. But I'm just focusing on my side of the garage.

"The way I see it, we knew that whatever we do now, we're going to get a penalty for it. On my side of the garage, we're looking quite good with the engine.

"Daniil was a bit closer to limit so they decided to change it earlier than mine. It's fine by me, I just have to get on with it now.

"As a team, we didn't want two cars to get penalties, so we split it. Regarding the future we have to see because we don't know when I'll get one yet."
