Honda is out of Formula 1, here is their latest Formula 1 odyssey in pictures, from end of Tyrrell to end of Honda:

2004 – The best ever year – team finished 2nd in constructors championship, Jenson Button 3rd in drivers championship.
2005 – David Richards replaced by Nick Fry. BAR excluded from 2 races following the fuel tank cheating issues, no points scored for half of the season.
2006 – Honda takes full control of the team, BAR becomes Honda Racing F1. Jenson Button wins Hungarian GP.
2007 – BAT departs, Honda embarks on saving the Earth. The car turns out to be an uncopetitive dog.
