Entrevista a Hasegawa actual. 

2017.01.10 ... 017_split/

----- How is the PU development for 2017 going on?
2017 PU has changed a lot from the prev units both concept wise and packaging wise. I'm convinced that what we are doing is correct, but we are experiencing difficulties and it hasnt been completed yet. That it's not finished yet at this point is considerably severe, and we as a whole team are feeling pressure too.
However, compared to 2016 where we didnt know what to do and had no idea what we should do, now at least we believe it will be quite competitive if what we are trying to make now can be completed, so the rest is about whether we can make it in time or not.

―― 2017年シーズンに向けて、まずパワーユニットの開発状況はいかがでしょうか?

------- Regarding chassis as well, you were forced to struggle due to correlation errors in simulation etc last year, but is 2017 machine alright?
As a matter of fact, I have no idea (laughs). But I trust the team in McLaren, and think it will be solid at least. As for sudden huge improvement at the timing of big reg change like this year, RBR is a concern among others (laughs). Mclaren is solid for good and bad, so I dont think they will fail big time, but at the same time sth like "it's suddenly got better a lot!" wont happen either, I imagine.

―― 車体のほうも昨年はシミュレーションの誤差などが原因で苦戦を強いられましたが、2017年型マシンは大丈夫でしょうか?

------- Regarding the PU development, since when have you started development work for 2017?
To be frank, we knew we wouldn't be able to catch up Mercedes at the early stage already. We identified that we ought to review framework of ICE fundamentally in order to surpass them.
Therefore, you have to start the preparation process for 2017 from early stage, so we've initiated the project with detached task force in post holiday period in May last year already (which is like 10th May). I also thought we might want to shift focus towards that earlier, but it is also necessary to leave result steadily race by race in front of you, that's what we are competing for, so finding appropriate balance/proportion b/w the two was very difficult.

―― パワーユニットの開発については、いつごろから2017年型の開発を進めてきたのですか?

--------- You didnt reach an idea of stopping 2016 development quickly and focusing on 2017, like Renault?
hmm, why did I not do that way... If you gave up on 2016 completely, that might have been one possible approach to take for sure, but that's disrespectful to drivers, discourteous to fans who are watching/cheering us, also it's important to give it your best in the race one by one in front of you too. For us we sure have different perspective/conception like technology evolution and development from the longer tem point of view, but drivers are fighting with their lives at stakes, so we are responsible for introducing what's best at the point at least, I reckon.
―― ルノーのように2016年型の開発は早々に打ち切って、2017年型に集中しようという考え方にはならなかった?

--------- As you explained while ago, fundamentally different technologies like semi-HCCI is necessary in order to catch up with Merc and Ferrari, right?
I think so. I cannot disclose what sort of technology in specifics yet, but we have researched and considered all those new technologies being talked about publicly. Last May, we discussed possibility of "why not put 2017 development at the core and introduce what can be used for 2016 from there", but we reached the conclusion that we wouldn't be able to make it in time that way.
―― 先ほどおっしゃったように、2017年にメルセデスAMGやフェラーリに追いつくためにはセミHCCI(予混合圧縮着火)のような抜本的に異なる技術が必要ということですよね?

--------- as an organization, do you think you are getting ready for challenging the top?
Still long way to go. As for what we are not able to do, the issue of time restraints that we were late for the start was the most significant. Therefore, I didst think like we are lacking sth fundamental as a team, so it's about whether or not we possess the capability to recover and compensate the time handicap, and how we can achieve that quickly, that was the question. It's not that you are inappropriate/insufficient as an F1 team, but rather, elements like technology, human resource, time and budget are still far from enough in order to break through this situation/limitation.

―― チーム組織としては、トップに挑戦するための準備は整ってきているとお考えですか?

--------- You have capability/potential itself for that as an organization, but you need something extraordinary in order to catch up in the limited timeframe, right?
That's correct. That's what's difficult about it. Of course sky is the limit if you start demanding, but time, budget, staff....maybe a genius is what I want the most (laughs). We are conducting development at a pace faster than ordinary, also certainly the speed of our progress is faster than that of Merc's, I reckon. I hear that they had been developing for like 4 years prior to entering 2014. But we have to overtake this gap in a breath, so you need someone like this (mimicking Usain Bolt) in order for that.
The gap is closing gradually, and while I'm pleased with fans comment of "it's getting better isn't it", we've got to join the battlefield front after all. Otherwise there is no point in doing. We must be faster by 2 sec in order for that. That's how F1 is like...It would be severe if we continued plodding it steadily like this, I think.

―― 組織としてはその力はあるけど、限られた時間のなかで追いつくためには、何か大きなものが必要ということですね。

------- You said it's hard to imagine that the car will be suddenly better dramatically, but then, this year (2016)'s target was regular Q3, so realistic target for next year (2017) will be podium?
Right, we should aim at that I think. At this very stage I can no way declare "we can get podium", but we are putting up that level as a target.

―― マシンがいきなり飛び抜けてよくなることは想像しにくいということでしたが、そうなると、今季がQ3のレギュラー定着でしたから、来季の現実的な目標としては表彰台というところになるのでしょうか。

---- Realistically speaking, is it hard to catch up with Merc all of a sudden?
No, I don't think it's like that. However, what's uncertain the most is how much they will be advancing. Regarding PU, I think we can catch up with them as long as what's in development right now goes well. But, if they make bigger progress from current level beyond estimation, the gap will widen again, so.
In 2016 Merc alone was too predominant, to the extend that they finished the race at 1-2 irrespective of quali/grid position. Ferrari and RBR too, they had no worry of being threatened by others as long as running normally, so top 3 was head and shoulders above the rest. You've got to resolve that situation, otherwise it's boring (laughs).
But I suppose the gap should shrink there, and I think we must make the gap such that it would be not easy for them to recover once make a mistake even if it's one of top 3 teams. But you cannot know what it will be until you take the lid off, and it's more difficult than usual to make prediction for 2017 (laughs)

―― 現実的に考えると、いきなりメルセデスAMGに追いつくというのは難しいのでしょうか?

----- Fans as well, they'd like to see overwhelming speed and strength like in 2nd activity phase (80s/90s) and have this sense of "Honda is awesome after all", I imagine.
Yes, I think that way as well, and I'd like to show that. But in the 2nd period too, it wasn't that we won in F1 from the beginning, but accumulated one by one taking a lot of time and starting from F2. We had a lot of preparation period compared to other makers.
Meanwhile we as of now are not yet at the stage where we can say "this way there is absolutely no chance we get beaten". As the saying goes, "you can win by luck but there is always good reason when you lose", so you must crush the reasons for losing, and there are still hefty amount of reasons to lose in both PU and chassis. If those reasons for defeat disappear altogether, you can win.

―― ファンの人たちとしても、第2期の時のような圧倒的な速さと強さで、『ホンダってやっぱりすごいよね』っていうのを見たいんだと思うんですよね。


----------- You explained that it's essential to get back the shortage of time as soon as possible, so where do you Hasegawa-san set/see the target for that?
I'm not seeing it at all yet (laughs). You cannot see the 6th station post unless you go to 5th station (half way to the summit of mountain) first, you cannot see 7th station unless you go to 6th station first, so.

―― 遅れている時間を少しでも早く取り戻すことが必要だというお話でしたが、長谷川さんのなかで今、その目標はどのあたりに見えていますか?

---- At the moment which station you are at?
Currently at about 5th station, I think (laughs)
―― 今は何合目くらいなんですか?

------- Looking forward to seeing you standing on top
Indeed so. We must stand on the summit. Claiming the final/ultimate target is easy, champion. No need to hide that at all.
At this moment I'm feeling we are supported by all the fans, and receiving warm words of "well, you are making good fight" by sharing process of growth and evolution, but if it continued this for 5 more years, 10 more years, then we'd get told off like "you xxxx, cut it out", so (laughs). We've got to do it before it turns out to be like that, I think.

―― 山頂に立つのが楽しみです。

Lo de rojo a miedito..... que todavía no tienen la PU acabada y que se están encontrando problemas.

Lo de azul , da una idea clara de como se encontró el hasegawa el equipo en 2016, putha idea de por donde iban.......

Lo de verde, que empezaron el 10 de mayo con esta PU,.......para mi gusto muy tarde......

Lo de violeta es esperanzador.....Si consiguen hacer funcionar lo que tienen, pueden alcanzar a Mercedes.....pero si Mercedes mejora más de lo estimado, pues no. Pero de eso se deduce que la PU está proyectada para ser mejor que la de Mercedes de 2016. 

Ojalá no nos defrauden otra vez.......

Pero cada vez tengo más claro que si este japo hubiese estado desde el principio, ya en 2016 la PU hubiese sido competitiva.

Hay muchas más cosas interesantes en el artículo, pero yo sufro del mismo mal que Honda, falta tiempo.

Que otros lo desmenucen más. Big Grin Wink
