Honda left Formula 1 at the end of 2021 with a world title in its pocket. Although the Japanese brand will not return as an engine supplier, the Honda name will be prominent during the 2022 Japanese Grand Prix weekend.

Honda present in F1 after all in 2022

Honda will be the main sponsor of the Japanese Grand Prix in 2022. The Suzuka Circuit announced this via a press release. The Grand Prix, which is scheduled for the weekend of 7 to 9 October, will be known as the Formula 1 Honda Japanese Grand Prix.

This is the first time since 2019 that Formula 1 will travel to Japan again. Indeed, in 2020 and 2021 the Grand Prix was cancelled due to the coronavirus.

Honda out of F1 with a highlight

Honda left Formula 1 at the end of last season after a seven-year period following partnerships with McLaren, AlphaTauri and Red Bull Racing. It was with the latter team that the greatest successes were achieved, especially with Max Verstappen's World Cup win in 2021.
