Honda first entered F1 racing in 1963, but would periodically leave and re-enter the sport throughout the years, as both a constructor and an engine supplier. In 2004 Honda purchased 45% of the BAR team from British American Tobacco. The purchase came on the heels of BAR's best season, a second place finish in the constructors standings in 2004. In September 2005 Honda purchased the remaining 55% of BAR, racing under the name Honda Racing F1 Team for the 2006 season. In the 2006 season Jenson Button claimed his first victory at the Hungarian Grand Prix (pictured below).
