Max Verstappen finished second at the Turkish Grand Prix, in a special white ‘Arigato’ livery to honor Honda. On the wet circuit, nearby Istanbul, Max took the lead in the championship again. Two scale models (1:43 and 1:18), with worn (green) intermediate tires, of this car are now available for pre-order.
After the race, Max had the following to say: “It was not easy. The track was very greasy, we had to manage the tyres the whole race so we couldn’t really push. Because of the tyre wear we were eventually running on the tyre belt. In these conditions it’s easy to get it wrong, overall I am very pleased.” Max continues: “It always feels special to race for Honda. For us as a team and for Honda to miss out on the Japanese GP is a shame, but it’s cool that we can do something in Turkey instead to celebrate.”
The today launched 'Arigato Honda Collection' is a tribute to Honda for all they have meant to Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing over the past three years.
