Names on B.A.R.-Honda car
During replays, you can change the camera so you are looking out of the back, through the rear wing assembly. On the B.A.R-Honda car, you will notice what looks like lines of text written on the left hand wing element.
Although not completely clear in the game, this is an accurate recreation of a complete list of all of the members of staff who work for B.A.R-Honda with names such as Jenson Button and Takuma Sato (the drivers of the season), along with people such as Anthony Davidson (test driver), David Richards (team principal for the 2004 season), Geoff Willis (B.A.R technical director), Jock Clear (Takuma Sato's race engineer), and others.
