How many CEOs do you know of who spin around in their Formula One cars? Well Takeo Fukui, President and CEO of Honda, is one of a kind.

In a recent Team-BHP discussion, Amit had waxed eloquent of how exciting it would be to have a car guy at the helm of an auto company. Well, Honda has gone one step further. Not only did Mr. Fukui take a couple of hot laps in the BAR-F1 car, but he also took the company's RC211V racer bike around.

Go HONDA!!!

P.S. - Butttttttttttt the most surprising guffaw - The BAR-F1 was running Bridgestones and we all know about their partnership with Michelin in the championship!!

Awesome, the car really looks good. I wish BAR and Honda would come together and launch a "BAR-Honda" street car.

Simething like the "Mclaren-Merc" SLR.

Nope, this happened in the recent past. But they were running the 2003 BAR-Honda which raced on Bridgestones.
