The last one....
This was the last race for this season.
Personally I think quite good results, with 5th for Taku!
3 Out of 4 engines blew up however... Honda ran an engine that was only used in Qually so far. I think this shows the sport approach Honda has. Other teams might not take this kind of risk, worried about their name and image. Honda took the risk, just to get the teams more power!

This also means that they're getting a bad name in the reliability part of the F1 game! But slowly they're getting there, especially the last part of the season. Hopefully Honda will keep having the same speed of improvement in the off season! "You're as good as your last race" doesn't only go for drivers. When Honda gets better, everybody will cheer and forget what they're saying today...

It was nice to see lots of fans for Honda and Taku. This was Honda's home GP, and that was visable!

Honda Fans at the track!


We will keep you posted with any off season news we run into, and more interviews with senior HondaF1 personnel!

Stay tuned....
