Honda F1 earth car

The Honda Formula One team are to replace advertising and sponsor logos on their car this season with a giant picture of the Earth to raise awareness of environmental issues. "Climate change is probably the single biggest issue facing the global community and F1 is not immune from it," team boss Nick Fry said in a statement today. "On the contrary, we believe that F1 with its huge global profile and cutting edge technology can play an important role in not only highlighting the issues but also playing our part in developing solutions." The team said that, anybody could have the opportunity to have their name on the RA107 car by making a donation to an environmental charity. "Under the concept of 'our car is your car', each name will form a tiny individual pixel which will help build the image of planet earth on the car," it said. "Each name will be visible on the website when you make the pledge or under the microscope on the car."
