10 years since Honda’s F1 Earth Dreams

The Earth Dreams F1 car was unveiled at a test in Valencia on 23 January 2008, a week before the car’s official launch. For the 2008 season, the team retained their drivers from the previous two seasons, Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello. Honda also recruited Alexander Wurz from Williams, although the veteran Austrian had announced his retirement from race driving in 2007, but Wurz could not turn down the prospect of working alongside Ross Brawn who was newly assigned technical Director for the year.

2008 resulted in an awful season for Honda, but a great looking car non-the-less.
