British American Racing Honda has launched its new BAR-Honda 007 chassis but there is no sign of any new sponsorship on the car and one must therefore presume that British American Tobacco and Honda are footing the majority of the bill in 2005. The team says it hopes to win its first races this year and work towards winning the World Championship within three years.

The team has spent the winter trying to make up the ground which had been lost because of the new regulations with Honda in particular hoping to able to maintain its top-end power despite the fact that the rules have made that more difficult. The mid-range acceleration has also been improved.

The cars will be raced this year by Jenson Button and Takuma Sato and tested by Anthony Davidson and Enrique Bernoldi.
