Honda hopes to score a point or two in Hungary

The Honda Formula 1 team has scored only one single point so far this season. After a strong season in 2006 the current season has been a massive disappointment so far. Both Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button are sometimes not even close to points. After a promising test at Jerez though Honda's senior technical director Shuhei Nakamoto hopes to team can score a point or two this weekend in Hungary.

Shuhei NakamotoLooking ahead of the upcoming test Nakamoto said: "At our test in Jerez this week we worked on our set-up for Hungary and conducted an evaluation of our aerodynamic updates for this race. I am pleased to say that we found a good baseline. The Hungaroring provides a mixture of high and low speed turns and so mechanical grip is very important. The extremely hot conditions provided a good opportunity to test the engine and again the result was positive with good reliability. We understand that next weekend will be very hot indeed and so Jerez was a good acclimatisation opportunity for the challenging air and track temperatures we will face there. We hope to be in a position to score a point or two."
