"Without racing, there is no Honda"

Honda Engine

With these words, founder Soichiro Honda famously illustrated the Japanese firm's utmost belief in, and dedication to, motorsport.

It's a message that has echoed through the ages: Honda first entered Formula 1 in 1964, it returned again in the 1980s, enjoying its greatest successes with McLaren and the legendary Ayrton Senna. A works Honda effort returned to the grid in 2006, Jenson Button most recently winning a race in one of its famous cream and red racing cars.

For 2015, Honda returns to the pinnacle of motorsport, reuniting with its most famous racing partner - McLaren. As before, the manufacturer will use motorsport's most exacting series as an intensive training ground for its engineers, their learning subsequently feeding back into the company on every level.

As well as vehicle and engine technology, the Honda Motor Co., Ltd. has a broad portfolio, ranging from motorcycles and power equipment to the HondaJet aeroplane and Honda Robotics, which designed and built the famous ASIMO humanoid robot. All of Honda's products and technologies have the singular aim of affordably bringing joy and excitement to millions of people across the world.
