Honda may have (partially) pulled out of Formula One as an engine supplier last year, but they're not quite done with F1.

Historically, it was Fuji Television that served as the Japanese Grand Prix's title sponsor, but recent editions of the race saw brands such as Heineken and Rolex sponsor the event. But now, the Japanese manufacturer has announced that they are returning as the title sponsor of the Japanese Grand Prix for the 2022 FIA Formula One championship.

Honda was supposedly the title sponsor for last year's Japanese Grand Prix. But because of the restrictions in Japan due to the pandemic, the October race was cancelled. Now that things are easing back to normal globally, 2022 might be the year where we'll finally see all the Honda logos around the Suzuka circuit.

The Honda-owned Suzuka circuit is famous for hosting races that ultimately decided F1 championship battles such as Ayrton Senna vs. Alain Prost in the early 90s, Michael Schumacher vs. Mika Hakkinen in the early 2000s, and more recently, Lewis Hamilton vs. Max Verstappen. By the looks of things, Suzuka might see another title-deciding battle for this year's championship.

The Formula 1 Honda Japanese Grand Prix will be the 18th race on the calendar, and will be held from October 7 to 9, 2022.

With Honda confirmed as the title sponsor, we'll see the return of a Japanese brand sponsoring a Grand Prix in Japan. Definitely, it's more Japanese than Crypto or Aramco.
