Regarding Fernando's Singapore power unit, we were concerned that it may have been irreparably damaged, but fortunately after a thorough check back at the Sakura factory we can confirm it is okay to be re-used.feedback

All quotes by Yusuke Hasegawa on Honda

We've had an incredibly difficult and ultimately disappointing weekend here in Russia. It was a positive that Stoffel finished the race, especially in such tough conditions, starting from the back of the grid. Today his running was impressive and he kept consistent pace in a difficult situation with tyre and fuel management. Stoffel hasn't had an easy start to the season with many issues during each race weekend, so we're happy that he finally took the chequered flag, albeit in P14 which is of course not where we want to be.feedback

After a disappointing grand prix weekend in Bahrain, we have since had an extremely busy few days during in-season testing, also at the Bahrain International Circuit. The team has been working hard to implement some countermeasures to help combat our MGU-H issues. By the second day of testing, we think we were able to confirm the direction of our solution against the issue after completing 81 laps with Stoffel behind the wheel. The results are testament to the team's hard work and determination.feedback

The nature of the track, with its long straights combined with 90-degree corners, means the race will be stop-start, putting emphasis on the balance of energy management. Unlocking power and managing fuel will also be key. We will of course work hard with McLaren during the practice sessions in order to find the best set-up, and we are hoping to show a good performance.feedback

The 2016 Russian Grand Prix saw McLaren-Honda finish the race with two cars in the points, so of course we will do our best to try and replicate this. That said, I expect the Russian Grand Prix will be another challenging race weekend for us.feedback

Fernando will use a new MGU-H and Stoffel also a low-mileage one, so I think we will be alright tomorrow.feedback

But it is not a one-day job. In a month's time or two weeks' time I would like to try, but I cannot guarantee here. As soon as I can prepare that I am happy to introduce that. Also the same, the rumour is just a rumour. After the winter test we are having a strong pressure from the team and from the driver, but we keep improving. We try to keep improving. And of course a second team, we try to have some conversation but nothing is fixed.feedback

The problem that we had in the testing, every single reason [for the problems] we tried to modify the engine, but from the performance point of view we are still struggling to extract more power from the engine. Actually it is different from the test situation. But I hope reliability issue was fixed already. I cannot guarantee when we can get the power, but as soon as possible of course we will try to introduce a new specification for that.feedback

And at the same time we will continue to work on our development to generate more power from the PU.feedback

Of course the situation we find ourselves in is not what we hoped for when we returned to Formula One, but we are still 100 per cent committed to our future in the sport and our relationship with McLaren. We believe in this partnership as does McLaren, and in order to move forward it is important for us to work as one team and overcome the situation together. The priority is to maintain honest and open communication, and to continue strengthening all relationships between Honda and McLaren despite the difficulties we are facing. This is not a short-term project for us.feedback
