McLAREN HONDA MP4-29H

PRELUDE TO BEING CHAMPION

"Success is 99 percent failure."
Soichiro Honda - Founder, Honda Motor Company

Honda had won the Formula 1 world championship once again with Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen. The McLaren Honda MP4-29H is the "Prelude" to the story of how Honda became the F1 world champion once again. Honda engineers never give up to keep developing their power units despite they had faced many setbacks. As the result, Honda finally won the F1 world championship. "Success is 99 percent failure." The 1:43 McLaren Honda MP4-29H which elaborately reproduced the real car as the 1:43 scale model reminds us of the words of Honda's founder, Soichiro Honda.

The test was a tough F1 return for Honda. Seven years later, Honda had been the F1 world champion in Abu Dhabi, which is the same place where Honda returned to F1. Abu Dhabi is the place where Honda's F1 story started and ended with the F1 world champion.
