Honda Motor Co., Ltd. has been selected as the title sponsor of this year’s F1 Japan Grand Prix. As a result, it will be held under the name of “2022 FIA F1 World Championship Series Honda Japan Grand Prix Race”.
Maybe our rumor that Honda is having 2nd thoughts about leaving F1 is true.
Speaking earlier this year, Honda’s former Formula 1 chief Masashi Yamamoto reckoned that the company had walked away from grand prix racing too early.
“Personally yes, I agree,” said Yamamoto. “But this is obviously a company decision and I understand which way the company wants to go, so in the end we have to accept that.
“But we always have the imagination, so we hope one day Honda will return to F1.”
