Ross Brawn talks exclusively to Honda Racing TV about his decision to join Honda. At the end of a hugely exciting day for the Honda Racing F1 Team, Ross Brawn took time out from his first visit to the team’s Brackley headquarters to tell Honda Racing TV why the lure of Honda’s challenging spirit proved impossible to resist.
Fresh from a year-long sabbatical, in which Ross gave careful consideration to the next step in his Formula One career, he says that hanging up his fishing-rod was not such a tough call versus the opportunities that lay ahead with Honda. “It wasn’t so difficult”, said Ross, “especially with an opportunity like this, because there are only a few teams in Formula One that appeal to me and this especially was one that I wanted to work for. So it wasn’t a difficult decision.”
When asked why he found the role at Honda so enticing, in his first TV interview for his new team, he said: “The main thing is the attitude and commitment of Honda. Also knowing that Honda have a very long racing heritage and they understand what is needed in racing, how difficult it is, how challenging it is and clearly they are making the commitment in resource, commitment in people and commitment in all the things that are necessary to succeed in Formula One. If we don’t succeed it’s down to us, it’s not down to the resources and commitment that Honda are making.”
