The announcement back in January that British American Tobacco and the Honda Motor Co had completed the establishment of their 55-45 joint venture called BARH Limited, the parent company of the BAR team, was a very short statement with no real details of the new company. It is worth noting therefore that in recent months three Honda executives have now joined the BAR board.

Honda Racing Developments's president Shoichi Tanaka, vice-president Otmar Szafnauer and engineering director Shuhei Nakamoto are now all on the management board of the team.
