Max Verstappen is very happy that Honda has had so much confidence in the collaboration with Red Bull Racing. The Dutchman states that the world title they have won together proves that you should never give up.
The adventure of Red Bull Racing and Honda in Formula 1 is now really over. The two parties have enjoyed a fruitful partnership over the past three years, and have achieved countless fantastic results since they first met in 2019. Verstappen’s world championship was the big icing on the cake. Despite Honda’s great success with Red Bull and AlphaTauri, the Japanese company has chosen to leave Formula 1. The activities in the royal class would no longer suit the company and the objectives.

They just had to believe in it and luckily they did.”
