Honda has admitted that, despite its might, it will find it hard to win in its first season back in Formula One.

Despite securing five drivers' and six constructors' titles during its last spell in the category, Honda realises that the current state of Formula One could preclude instant success on its return in 2000, but would not rule out an eventual return to the top of the podium. (I doubt we can win in the first year,) said company president, Hiroyuki Yoshino, (It will take three years to be a viable contender.)

According to Yoshino, image and success go hand-in-hand when the company returns to F1, with the high-tech nature of its business being almost as important as winning. (The bottom line in racing is that it challenges our engineers,) the president said, (I deeply believe that our experience in racing is a basic reason for Honda's success.)
