Takahiro Hachigo, Chief Executive Officer, Honda Motor Co., Ltd
First of all, I would like to send my sincere congratulations to Pierre. Pierre, you did it!!
It was a dramatic race and I was very nervous and excited from start to finish.
Pierre has shown a spirit of “Never giving up” throughout his career and grabbed his opportunity to take the win yesterday, after finishing on the podium for the first time, last year in Brazil. His attitude embodies Honda’s “Challenging Spirit” and this victory encourages us very much.
Having started our partnership with Scuderia Toro Rosso in 2018, it was particularly special that this was our fiftieth race together.
I would like to send my appreciation to all the people in Scuderia AlphaTauri, starting with Franz Tost, for all their hard work and determination. I would like to thank our fans who always give us so much support. I am very pleased that we were able to share this joy together.
