Honda would stay active in Formula 2 for some time, and would eventually return to F1 in 1983 as an engine supplier. This would finally pay off in 1987, when Nelson Piquet would pilot a Honda-powered Williams car to the world championship. Honda switched teams after this, and with McLaren
, powered five more championship cars. These included all three of the cars used by Ayrton Senna to win the championship. Honda stayed on as an engine supplier for some time, and although Honda-powered cars won races, there wasn’t another championship to be had after the ’87-’91 streak.
