At Long Last, Triumph for Honda in F1

The date was August 6th 2006, the driver was Jenson Button, and the venue was the Hungarian Grand Prix. This race is where Honda took its last win in Formula 1 until today, 13 years later, on June 30th 2019 Max Verstappen drove his Honda-powered Red Bull to victory in the Austrian Grand Prix.

It has been no secret that Honda has struggled since re-entering Formula 1 in 2015 with McLaren. Since then, Honda has competed in 90 Formula 1 Grands Prix during which Honda fans remained some of the most loyal on the grid while they watched engines fail, poor pace, and a fractious relationship with McLaren devolve into termination of their partnership. The terms “Spec 3” and “Spec 4”, in reference to Power Unit revisions, became rallying cries. Turbulent Jet Ignition and Pre-chamber Combustion became the technical buzzwords fans practically willed to be in the works at Honda’s Sakura headquarters.
