Pollock Confirms Honda will Continue to Back BAR

Monday June 18th, 2001

British American Racing boss Craig Pollock confirmed on Monday that Japanese manufacturer Honda will continue to power the team in 2002.

Honda, who signed with BAR last year, supply engines and also help with chassis development for the team.

Pollock dismissed paddock speculation that Honda, who also supply Jordan, may consider working with only one team next season.

"I don't care what people are saying," said Pollock. "What I am saying is that I definitely have a signed contract with Honda. And they have told me they will honor that contract - which I think will probably be exactly the same situation with Jordan."

The assurance comes as a big boost to Canadian driver Jacques Villeneuve, who has pledged his allegiance to BAR since joining them from Williams in 1999. The team predicted great things in their debut season but failed to win a single championship point.

However, BAR have slowly improved their cars and currently lie sixth in the constructors' championship with 12 points, with Villeneuve seventh in the drivers' table with seven points.
