Toyoharu Tanabe, technical director of Honda Racing F1, says after the Brazilian Grand Prix: “This is our first win in Brazil since Ayrton Senna’s epic victory in 1991. Today’s win was down to an aggressive and intelligent race from Max and a well executed strategy from the team. To take a third win this season is a great result for everyone at Honda and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.”

Tanabe continues: “The car-PU package worked very well with both our teams and that has to be a good sign for the final race of the season and when we look ahead to next year. We would like to dedicate this win to our founder, Soichiro Honda, whose birthday it would have been today.”
