Honda began racing in Formula 1 starting in 1964 with driver Ronnie Bucknum. The first Grand Prix win in a Honda would come at the 1965 Mexican Grand Prix with Richie Ginther driving. Honda withdrew from Formula 1 later that decade.
Honda became the sole engine supplier to the Indy Racing League starting in 2006 after previously competing in the series.
Honda also has a new Formula 1 program. It was originally a joint venture with BAR, but Honda took full control of the team in late 2005.

Due to the enormous volume of information available most of the lists on the site are works in progress. They are great for seeing what information or products are available or what events have happened but the absence of information or a line item on a list should not be interpreted that something did not exist or did not happen. It probably just means we haven't gotten around to adding it yet.
