TOKYO -- After a seven-year hiatus from Formula One auto racing, Honda Motor will on March 13 make a comeback at the Australian Grand Prix.

     Honda has teamed up with McLaren again for its return to the prestigious competition. Back in 1988, Honda and McLaren scored a stunning streak of victories, winning 15 out of 16 races. The British-Japanese racing team used to have two legendary drivers: Brazil's Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost of France.
