Honda has confirmed that Max Verstappen’s and Sergio Perez’s engines that have been damaged lately cannot be repaired.
Red Bull Racing is now facing a difficult situation regarding power units. Honda has confirmed that the damaged engines on Verstappen and Perez cars are unrepairable, so they cannot be used anymore this season.
That means both drivers will have their third power units on their cars, the last one available for the season. Next engine change will result in grid penalty for the drivers.
Verstappen’s engine got terminal damage during the incident with Lewis Hamilton at the British GP, while Perez’s engine got the damage during the opening lap shunt at the Hungarian GP.
