    So, how well do you think Honda have fixed the problem?

    I've been very optimistic and think both will be out between 31-40

    I think they may just get into the 40's. It'll take them a while mind

    Are we taking an average or just 1 of their cars?

    I'm going to say 1 of the cars will finish and 1 car will suffer alot of problems.

    They won't make the first stop, or will breakdown shortly afterwards. 11-20 laps.

    40s? They'll only get to that number of laps if they lap in the 1m 40s.. by which time they'd have been lapped 3 times!!

    I wonder what the odds are on one of them making a pitlane start, I cannot imagine both taking the grid in a normal fashion. 21-30 laps for me, although I've not decided if that's individually, as a pair, or over the whole weekend.

    Apologies. It's whichever one gets the furthest of the 2.
    I could've sworn I'd written it in the question

    I am almost certain that stopping the car in the box will trigger all the problems.

    I dunno. I thought the issue was vibrations?

    Stopping in pits would overheat engine etc but i just think they will loose hydrualics through vibrations.

    I agree with start from pit lane idea for one car.

    Most importantly both cars to be dead last on grid at best and 10 laps max.

    Honda say they fixed the vibrations, it was engine mapping allegedly.
    Then again Honda say a lot of things.

    They managed to limp Buttons car across the line in 2015. If it's worse Honda should just withdraw now.
