Nishizawa - Honda will continue Jordan and BAR supply

THE technical director of Honda's racing division has said the Japanese engine suppliers will continue to build power units for both Jordan and BAR next season.

Katzutoshi Nishizawa dismissed reports that Honda would drop one of the teams in 2002 and said that he had already spoken to both teams in readiness for next year.

"I don't understand why this rumor is circulating," said Nishizawa. "We will supply both teams next year.

"In fact we presented our 2002 engine to both teams in Malaysia and we already have had several meetings with them. We never planned to drop either team."
