leave a comment

Honda 2007 interim livery Honda launched their new car the RA107 at Spain with an interim black livery till the new livery is released by them in february. Jenson Button seemed upbeat about the launch. Button who is back in action after breaking his ribs in a karting accident in November stressed on the importance of consistency for the Honda formula one team.

“If we are going to be at the front, then you have to be competitive from the first race to the last,” Button said

But it seems Honda had other ideas , his car stopped just three corners from the start, the car was taken back to the pits and was repaired and soon Jenson Button was zooming on the tracks. Team Boss Nick Fry who has often publicly admired Jenson Button had the following to say on the launch :

“Last year we got off to a reasonable start and were pretty good by the end of the year, but in the middle we were weak in a number of races, which was very disappointing,”

“Even in our best year of 2004 we had a slump in the middle, so our objective is to start competitive, be competitive in the middle of the season and finish strongly as well.

“If we can do that then it will be a strong step in the right direction towards winning a championship, which is the ultimate objective.”
