Honda has praised Max Verstappen for his recent win at Imola. The Japanese giants who supply engines to Red Bull Racing were happy to see Max taking the chequered flag home.
Max who started the race at P3 in the Grid managed to speed up and overtake Lewis Hamilton right before the turn. Red Bull and Honda together have improved a lot in wet conditions after failing miserably in last year’s Istanbul Grand Prix.
Honda’s F1 technical director Toyoharu Tanabe in an interview conveyed, “I think it was very good that Max was able to pass Hamilton after the dash from the start. I think it was worth it.”
Max Verstappen helped by Honda’s wet conditions improvement
Honda are all set to leave Formula One by the end of this year and their long association with Red Bull will come to an end. Red Bull will move forward with their own power trains from next year onwards and develop their car in Milton Keynes.

As the Japanese giants are looking to leave, it seems they want to leave on a high note. The improvements they’ve done with the car is massive as Verstappen’s performance reflects on that as well.
The high rake system, the improvement in wet conditions helped Verstappen claim his much-needed pole position. The Dutchman is the current title favorite alongside Lewis Hamilton and has just lost the season opener Bahrain Grand Prix by seven-tenth of a second to the Briton.

Max is currently at P2 with 43 points, just behind leader Lewis Hamilton who’s at 44 points. We expect the upcoming Portuguese Grand Prix to be a fierce battlefield between the two heavyweights. In that, Honda will do everything to help Max Verstappen clinch his desired title.
