They still have a year to go before they will enter Formula One: Honda. But the first showing has been impressive. Jos Verstappen drove the Honda on the Jerez (Spain) circuit today. This was the first test together with other teams. He completed the test without problems and he was over 1.5 seconds than BAR driver Jacques Villeneuve.

Alexander Wurz had a problem in the new Benetton when the rearwing broke off and he ended in a gravel trap.
