It is not just Ferrari who have brought a new turbo to Canada, Japanese manufacturer Honda have also brought an upgrade for this weekend.

Ferrari hope that their new turbo will, in theory at least, recoup more energy with the MGU-H, giving a pace boost particularly with the use of the ERS, which would provide a substantial performance increase during qualifying.

Honda hope that their new turbo will provide improved harvesting efficiency, so whilst not bringing improved power it should bring a performance boost.

To do this Honda have used two engine tokens from their allotted allocation, which has remained unchanged since they used 18 of their permitted 32 over the winter.

‘It’s going to be a while before we’re actually competitive enough to fight for big points – but we are making good progress,’ 2009 Formula One World Champion Jenson Button told Sky Sports at the drivers press conference.

‘People would think this isn’t a circuit that will suit our car, I think it’s going to be alright. We have come here with some upgrades, which should help us. It’s not big, but it should help us.

‘We are very efficient in terms of our car. ExxonMobil has been working very hard with Honda on fuel, so we have an upgrade here, which should help us in that area. So we’re positive.’
