Honda's goal for 2020 is to power Red Bull to the world championship.

That is the news from Yasuaki Asaki, who heads up Formula 1 operations at Honda's Sakura factory in Japan.

He revealed that "spec 1.1" of Honda's 2020 engine will make its debut in Austria next weekend.

"My goal is to win in a situation where either Mercedes or Honda can win," he said.

"I am excited and anxious about the goal - to be champion," Asaki added.

Honda's F1 managing director Masafumi Yamamoto agreed: "This year is a big milestone.

"I would like to compete humbly to meet the support and expectations of the fans, and humbly fight each race so that I can smile with you at the end," he added.
