Tempers flare at beleaguered Honda

(GMM) Tempers are starting to flare at Honda, as the depth of the Japanese squad's crisis with its dreadful RA107 single seater became ever clearer at the Malaysian grand prix.

Jenson Button this weekend revealed that team members have begun "shouting at each other", while his veteran teammate Rubens Barrichello was spotted at Sepang in a moment of rare garage fury during a qualifying gaffe.

"Sometimes you just need to voice off some truths," said the Brazilian, who described the Brackley based team's error of not having the T-car adequately set up when he needed to use it at Sepang as "amateurish".

Barrichello had to switch to the spare Honda on Saturday afternoon, and on Sunday finished the race a lap down.

Having previously identified braking instability as a main problem, he now explains that the Earth-liveried car is also terminally slow in a straight line — beaten for terminal pace in Malaysia even by satellite squad Super Aguri, who use an identical engine.

"(The car) acts like a parachute on the straights," Barrichello told Radio Bandeirantes.
