maybe they been spending on HUKD?

Honda Japan have pretty much said they can't afford to bankroll the team any more and if they don't find a new buyer in a month, unlikely in the current clime, then they'll be no more.

They feared that some teams could fold as it wouldn't be sustainable any more.

lol

Surely formula 1 generates advertising and therefore sales for these constructors though?

I mean, yeah, there's the prestige aspect also but they must make money out if not directly then indirectly?

is jenson button going to be outta a job then?

"One thing is clear - the withdrawal from Formula One will be complete. Honda will not remain in the sport as an engine supplier, so any purchaser will need to fund an engine supply. We understand that Ferrari are already prepared to supply another team, should commercial terms be agreed."

Ha, love that Red Bull can afford to bankroll their team (with help admittedly) with a caffiene based beverage but Honda are struggling! Maybe if Honda teamed up with Ginsters . . . . . :w00t:
