    Honda F1 Pull Wont Effect MotoGP Team

    Honda's decision to withdraw from Formula One will not have any effect on the Repsol Honda MotoGP team, according to Honda Europe.

    The global financial crisis led to marque bosses in Japan pulling their support of the European-based F1 team, but Honda Europe spokesman Paul Ormond says the MotoGP team is not under threat.

    "The decision to pull out of F1 does not affect the other forms of motorsport Honda are involved in," Ormond told autosport.com.

    "We will be looking at reducing our costs, as we're sure other teams will be doing too, in MotoGP and other motorcycle activities."

    The factory Honda team will run Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso next year, with pre-season testing beginning at the end of January.

    Good, it'll be interesting to see Dovizioso with a top team next year.
