Winner of the Black Hole of Motorsport Award…
The Honda RA108 is, without doubt, the worst F1 car in recent memory. Think of all the resources that Honda chucked at it… and then everything it completely failed to achieve.
But we’ll leave aside what a crushing disappointment it was straight out of the box. And we’ll ignore the awful ‘My Earth Dreams’ campaign that was supposed to inspire people to save the world, but actually just brought attention to the fact that Honda found it easier not to get a main sponsor.
Let’s concentrate instead on how ruined the RA108 has left Jenson Button’s career. The car was so utterly rubbish that it gave the Japanese firm’s head bods no confidence whatsoever in sticking with F1 for 2009.
They pulled out and ‘our Jense’ lost the only available race seat that could have returned him to the front of the grid, leaving him with a 2009 diary that reads something like ‘Get up. Make coffee. Sit around for a while. Play X-Box…’
‘Gutted’ probably sums up Mr Button’s emotions rather nicely at the moment.
So cheers, RA108. You were a big black hole that sucked everything in around you and produced nothing. You big pile of turd.
