What will 'new' Honda be called?

News is expected this week to officially confirm that a management buy-out has saved the Honda Racing F1 team.

Sources revealed to Crash.net last week that a buy-out led by Ross Brawn and Nick Fry had emerged as the chosen option of Honda management in Japan, despite reports of interest from other parties; including the Richard Branson-led Virgin Group (more information HERE).

It is now expected that official news of the deal will come later this week before the team's new car completes its first run at Silverstone before heading to Spain for further testing ahead of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix.

The question now is what the team will be known as, with Brackley F1 and Brawn Racing both being mooted as possible titles when the team takes its place on the grid in Melbourne.

But we want to know what you think is the most likely name for the outfit, and have given you some options to choose from in out latest poll.

However, we also want to know your suggestions for a team title, and you can log your views by posting a comment with the name you'd like to see the former Honda outfit run as during the 2009 F1 campaign.

Force UK then if it's a failure we can all say it was a F UK up, and should it fold through lack of funds they can shut the F UK up.....
