The financial crash gave us a face-saving way out of that effort. As Seinfeld would say: "I'm not saying that's bad..."
IIRC, Honda left F1 in the early 90's after a couple of years of dominance by Williams-Renault after the turbo era. Which is sadly how Ayrton Senna ended up driving for Williams...
