Another day, another Honda story

NEWS STORY
03/03/2009

Japans biggest circulation newspaper reports that the Honda Motor Co is close to a deal which will finally see its F1 team under new ownership.

"We expect to be able to make an announcement from the company and the team in the near future," the Yomiuri daily quotes a source at the Honda Motor Co as saying. "Honda has been making all possible efforts to avoid the worst option of having to disband the team."

Back in Britain, the team remains tight-lipped, the only official spokesperson for the team continuing to insist that negotiations continue and that there have been no new developments.

Force India boss Vijay Mallya has revealed that he has given his approval for Mercedes to supply the Brackley squad, while the rumour-mill now claims that if all goes to plan Rubens Barrichello will partner Jenson Button this season.

Hardly an hour passes by without talk of another surprise buyer or sponsor, while there is still mystery as to Nick Fry's role.

If the Brawn Racing website isn't a red herring - and there have been quite a few since December 5 - it is considerably better than what the team might have been called... Fry Brawn Racing.
