Team manager Nick Fry is confident BAR-Honda will win a Formula One world championship in the near future.
Fry's BAR-Honda have endured a difficult year so far
BAR are a lowly seventh in this year's constructors' title race, but Fry sees salvation in Honda's expected takeover.
"We have always said we will win the championship, and we are convinced it will happen," he said.
"We have got the backing of Honda to do it. They have done it enough times before and there's no reason why we shouldn't do it again."
Honda bought 45% of the team over the winter and are expected to complete a takeover when British American Tobacco are forced out due to the end of cigarette sponsorship.
