Honda could come back to competing in Formula One within a few years
|   Saturday, October 13, 2012
The head of the Honda Racing Division has announced that Honda could in future return to the world of motor sports. This is led to rumors doing the round that Honda is developing the all new 1.6 liter turbo charged engine – that is set to launch in 2014 – exclusively for the Formula One track.

Formula One is a tough motor sport and to be involved in racing requires a lot more than just the knack of it. Honda could however plan a comeback as the team is dedicated and have a commitment towards racing.
As of now, fans just have to wait and watch.

Honda has been keeping track of the rules of Formula One Racing and if the rules seem to be attractive enough, Honda could stage a possible return to the world of Formula One. The constructors had left Formula One due to difficulties and misunderstandings and an immediate return seems unlikely. However, the officials are hinting towards a return in the near future.

Honda is actively taking part in the World Touring Car Championship and the constructors have found glory in the newly launched Honda Civic Type R Rally vehicle. The vehicle is designed and customized specifically for rallies and the next probable upgrade of the vehicle, which is set to be available post 2014 will feature a turbo charged engine.

Honda is working on new technologies and turbo charged engines and the vehicles being sold in the European markets are usually turbo charged. Honda is finally offering vehicles for the racing enthusiasts and this essence if put into racing could mean that the vehicles from Honda are turning out to be more race centric.

Honda had quit Formula One in 2008 and if the constructors develop their new technology, the company could well be on track of developing a new race car, specifically for Formula One. The company is currently looking forward to the World Touring Car Championship and if things go as per plans, a probable entry into other forms of motor sports is a possibility that we will encounter pretty soon.

Honda had to quit Formula One, even though it was a very successful constructor back then, mainly due to financial crisis, or so the company claims. In an official announcement Honda had said that the cost of running a team is by no ways low and due to the global economic crisis hitting the world economy, the most viable decision the company had was to quit Formula One.

Honda had Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button behind the wheels and both the drivers have attained their respective places in the global rankings of today. The team had a lot of potential and Honda's brilliant Japanese engineering is not something new.

Honda was spending 300 Million Pounds every year in development research and allegedly, this was more than the company could afford at the time. However, putting the past strongly behind them and the global economy slowly but steadily stabilizing, Honda is looking forward to more favorable outcomes.
