The Toro Rosso Formula 1 team will enter the 2018 season with a new engine strapped in the back, a Honda engine that is under immense pressure to catch up to the pack in both reliability and performance. Toro Rosso have used engines from Ferrari and Renault in the past, and now a relationship with Honda is about to start. This could be a very important step for Hondas latest bid in Formula 1, with their McLaren deal changing so they can fix their issues elsewhere, in the Toro Rosso. Added to this the position sister team Red Bull Racing find themselves in with their Renault engine deal expiring at the end of the year and no continuation likely. Red Bull may find themselves with Honda as the only option for 2019, which makes this 2018 season vital Honda makes significant inroads if Red Bull is to be competitive.
