It's not easy being green...

Just ask Honda.

Remember the rumor I mentioned a few days ago, where Honda is going to scrap the RA107 and bring in a completely new car halfway through the season?

Planet-F1.com is saying it's true, with no less a person than Jensen Button coming out and saying it'll happen at Montreal.

Just how much difference will it make? That's not much time to design, create and test a new car. Even SuperAguri didn't manage it last year; they had to drag out the old Arrows chassis, and just updating it to the 2006 spec took three months. Honda is starting over, with TWO months.

Hoo-boy, this'll be interesting.

1 They could do something as simple as a new paint job. That would make the car look a million times better. ;-)

2 Rubens started it. He said, approximately, "Honda has loooooots of resources, and we'll definitely fix this problem, no worries! Even if it comes down to making a new car, we'll do it! But I hope it won't need it." Nothing in the quote says that Button means a new car. It's probably a 'B' version of some kind, just like Toyota did before.
