Jeez Takuma! not again... :(

Will Honda go the distance?

Although they deny it, Honda's RA005E (2005) Formula One engine still has not notched up a complete two-grand prix distance (1000km) in winter testing. At Valencia on Thursday, Takuma Sato's V10 example blew up -- on the second flying lap. It's the third new unit to do so.

Meanwhile, at the twisty Spanish circuit, Williams' 2004 car - the 'interim' FW26C model - ran for the last time ever.

Technical director Sam Michael said the Grove-based team is 'in the middle' of the build period for the new BMW-powered FW27, that'll be launched on Monday and debuted at Valencia next week.
