Honda restructures its F1 operations

After a hard three-season relationship with Honda, McLaren in September negotiated a release from its contract, with the team signing up to field Renault engines for 2018. That role has been removed with Honda splitting the responsibilities to create two new positions.

Honda, meanwhile, will remain in Formula 1 as power unit partner to Toro Rosso.

"By ensuring both the development team and racing team soundly fulfil their respective roles, Honda will continue its challenges so that fans can enjoy seeing Toro Rosso-Honda competing at the top level without further delay".

And, in an effort to make a success of the new partnership, Hasegawa's departure has resulted in Toyoharu Tanabe becoming technical director to oversee operations at the race track, while a new operating officer will be employed to head up engine development in Japan.

Honda has restructured its under-performing Formula One operations after the split from McLaren, with Yusuke Hasegawa to stand down as head of the Japanese company's F1 project at the end of the year.

Adamis Pharmaceuticals (ADMP) Given a $14.00 Price Target by Maxim Group Analysts
Granite Investment Partners LLC purchased a new position in shares of Adamis Pharmaceuticals in the 3rd quarter worth $457,000. Raymond James Financial started coverage on shares of Adamis Pharmaceuticals in a research report on Tuesday, September 12th.

Tanabe, who was also chief engineer to Britain's Jenson Button at BAR and Honda Racing between 2003 and 2007, will run operations at the racetrack and in testing.

Honda says he will use his experience and knowledge from the F1 project to work on various global research and development projects focused on future mass production.

Hasegawa, meanwhile, will remain with Honda in a role away from its Formula 1 programme; the amended management structure will come into place at the start of January.

"By separating these areas of responsibility, we will evolve our structure so that both the development team and racing/testing team can assume their respective responsibilities more speedily".
