(cafetheology.org) – It was one of the worst-kept secrets of the past weeks, now it's official: Toro Rosso will compete in Formula 1 with 2018 engines. Teamchef Franz Tost and Red Bull Motorsport Consul Helmut Marko were the driving forces behind the deal, motivated by a persistent and acute dissatisfaction with Renault. The new project Toro-Rosso-Honda is due to the late announcement – the vehicle design 2018 is already well advanced under time pressure. "We're starting work right away," says Toro-Rosso technical director James Key. In principle, he sees the change rather as an "adaptation" of the technical plan than a total change, "and we are in the process of adapting our design and production activities together with Honda to ensure that we can meet all deadlines." Key sees "some challenges" to his team, "but Toro Rosso has often mastered difficult tasks in the past, we are flexible enough to deal with them, and we will work hard to redesign the engine installation that has the minimal or no effect on our development work for 2018. This is currently our goal. "This means concretely: The architecture of the car must be adapted, the chassis and gearbox are just being transilluminated to the new requirements. At the same time, a close contact with the Honda engineers has to be built in order to get the maximum out of the new package – from the first race. "We are looking forward to a strong, stable and proactive partnership with our colleagues at Honda," Key is optimistic. The moment Honda has a great catch-up demand and is the weakest engine of the Formula 1, Toro Rosso does not irritate. "I strongly believe that we will have a fruitful future together," says Teamchef Tost. There is great confidence in Honda's technological capabilities. And if these can actually be deployed from 2018, the next step will be from 2019: Red-Bull-Honda. But this has not been confirmed today …
