Honda for sale for £1

December 9th, 2008 No comments

What can you buy for a pound? Half a cup of coffee? 8 million Zimbabwe Dollars? Woolworths tried (unsuccessfully) to sell itself for £1 and now Honda is suggesting that its whole Formula One operation could be sold for as little as a pound if it would mean the team could keep racing.

I hope they find a buyer. I was really looking forward to seeing what Jenson Button and Ross Brawn could do next year after the 2009 regulations reboot. It will be a shame to see Honda disappear from Formula One so soon again after such a distinguished history in the sport. From their first win at the 1965 Mexican Grand Prix in the RA272 (the first for a Japanese car in Formula One) to providing the power for Senna’s McLaren MP4/6 Honda have always achieved what they set out to do – win. Which is why I guess I’m a bit surprised they didn’t stick it out a bit longer this time.
