Honda has opted to complete its first power unit change of the season after noticing an anomaly in the data on Daniil Kvyat's Toro Rosso car through opening practice for the Chinese Grand Prix on Friday.

Kvyat ended FP1 at the Shanghai International Circuit in eighth place, but an issue picked up in the post-session data analysis prompted Honda to change the Russian's power unit ahead of second practice.

It marks the first change to any of Honda's four power units on cars in F1 this year, with the two Red Bull entries and Kvyat's teammate, Alexander Albon, encountering no issues so far this year.
