After an eight-year hiatus, Honda returned as an engine provider and then part owner of the BAR team from 2000 to 2005. In 2006 it took full control and renamed it Honda.

And seriously dented its F1 credentials with a bunch of lemons. Only the year after they pulled out did their former team win a championship.

This is old news. Announced over 1 month ago. BUT it is great news. On the most recent top ten best FF cars ever made, Honda is the only compnay to have two on the list, Interga and Prelude. In a recent match up between the BRZ, RX-8 and s2000 (oldest of the bunch) the s2000 still comes out on top.

Honda made so many great cars. They haven't made a decent car in nearly 11 years. hopefully this is a sign they are going to take cars seriously again and not just try to look at profit margins. Good cars should drive a good car company to good profits. Driving a car cominpy by profits just creates cheap bad cars. lets the engeineer run the company agian please.

No this is not old news. Though it has been rumored for quite some time, their return to the 2015 grid has not been annouced yet.

Whoever hears the animal-like scream of a Honda F1 engine on full power, down the track, will never forget it. It always sounded different, somehow. It makes one feel ALIVE!!

new engines will be 1.6 litre, twin turbo V6s, similar to the 1.5L turbos of the 80s, but theyll be fuel restricted to keep power down, unlike the highly boosted engines of the 80s, 800hp race, qualifying around 1400hp. they were time bombs but excellent to watch/hear
