A tire (American English) or tyre (British English; see spelling differences) is a ring-shaped component that surrounds a wheel's rim to transfer a vehicle's load from the axle through the wheel to the ground and to provide traction on the surface traveled over. Most tires, such as those for automobiles and bicycles, are pneumatically inflated structures, which also provide a flexible cushion that absorbs shock as the tire rolls over rough features on the surface.quote:

ziet er naar uit dat STR Honda een goede match gaat worden.quote:Toro Rosso is surprised at the compactness of the Honda PU
An engineer with Toro Rosso who confirmed the specification of Honda says "I was surprised at compactness". Honda's general manager Yusuke Hasegawa also talks as follows.
"We (Honda and Toro Rosso) are not having such a hard time because the Honda's PU is more compact (than Renault) because the degree of freedom of development on the vehicle body is expanding. On the contrary, I heard that McLaren side is struggling.But Honda and Reni Taffin of Renault also team He says "I can not tamper with the skeleton of the engine any more."
After the final race in Abu Dhabi GP, a tire test aimed at the evaluation of the 2018 type Pirelli tire will be conducted on a two-day schedule. Honda, who was supposed to participate from 2015, joined McLaren from the Abu Dhabi test three years ago and participated in the test. Is it possible for Honda to work with Toro Rosso in this test this time?
"As there is a contract with McLaren until the end of November, we will not be able to test with other teams until then."
So, when will Honda's PU coalesce with Toro Rosso?
"I think that the test of our key gearbox will be done in one of the dynamos of HRD Sakura or HRD MK in about the year.The engine and gear box are the specification of this year.The driving which was the subject this year It is to confirm the torsional vibration of the system.The matching of the gearbox is very important for us. "
Confirmation of this torsional vibration is an important test for Honda who was plagued by oscillation (resonance) at the beginning of the season. There are various vibrations in the drive system such as engines, gear boxes, tires and the like. Therefore, resonance always occurs. How does the problem miss that resonance? Normally you put the input shaft between the engine and the gearbox to miss the resonance.
Honda of this season also put an input shaft between McLaren's gearbox and the engine of Honda early in the season had a bad habit of making the combustion unstable in a certain revolution area, so unexpected at that moment Vibration occurred, causing resonance. Based on such reflections, Honda is focusing on this resonance countermeasure for the next season.
Although the relationship between Honda and Toro Rosso is going smoothly, there is one thing that has yet to be decided for the next season. It is a supplier of fuel and oil.
From this year Honda is using BP castrol, but now Toro Rosso is using Exxon Mobil. Because the sponsorship fee is involved in the decision, the political elements of the team side account for a large proportion. However, fuel is an important item related to the combustion of the engine. It has not been decided yet.
"When we changed to BP Castrol this year, BP Castrol side developed and supplied fuel in accordance with our intention.Fuel is an important thing that is the basis of combustion, So, I'd like you to decide as soon as possible, whichever comes up. "
Where is the supplier of fuel & oil? That is Toro Rosso Honda's biggest point of interest.
