Honda RA107

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Great find!

It looked interesting the first 5 seconds or so... then it gets overwhelming, like the BMW art cars.

The latest photo in the gallery was #4703. Replacing the number with 4704 (the thumbnail of which was hidden), shows this pic.

What do you mean replace it? I've heard other people talking about replacing numbers and getting a different picture, but I've never understood it.

Wow Honda weren't wrong saying that it's something new. Not quite sure what I think about this one yet...

I like the livery, but I think Honda risk hypocrisy if they dont demonstrate that the 107 is somehow greener than the other teams. If they don't, I don't really see the point.

With speculation that Google Earth might be the sponsor.

Yeah, if Honda thinks they are running a 'green' car then they are awfully wrong. They end up wasting so much energy and materials to go racing that it is really a joke. Maybe if they had an electric vehicle or some kind of regen braking then you could brag about 'green' technology, but as the car stands right now it is far from 'green'.
I love to love Senna.

There are plenty of other superficial reasons why Google Earth sponsorship is good for honda. They are both Internationally known, and I am willing to bet that aspect will be the one that is pushed during the official presentation of the sponsor. Anyways, no matter how superficial the relationship between the said sponsor and the team may be, it is still better than being sponsored by a cigarette brand.
