Verstappen: Honda training with red Bull 'so much better' than Renault
Max Verstappen believes Honda's development with its engine is allowing Red Bull to check the durability of its own parts of its Formula 1 car more than with Renault.
Red Bull and Renault ended their relationship at the start of the 2019 season and as the year has advanced the car has gotten better and better, with Verstappen picking up two victories.
Verstappen thinks one of the key benefits has been the reliability of the car, and feels that the planning that goes into each race has been a big element in their amazing displays.
He stated: "We did have mechanical disasters from the automobile and not the power unit last year, however they also got here due to the fact we in no way had the reliability to test up to the limit.
"Honda is spending a lot time on the dyno after which we also find out our limits from the parts on the car, so we never had that before.
"You in no way had an idea in case your car was sturdy sufficient or not and also you handiest discovered that out from retiring, so the whole preparation before you get right into a season is a lot better.
"The car and the power unit are very reliable."
Verstappen has completed every grand prix this season and not finished lower than fifth, something no other driver has managed this year.
