Hamilton: Verstappen's Honda-powered Australia success reminiscent of Senna
Lewis Hamilton said Max Verstappen's impressive Australian Grand Prix powered by Honda put him in mind of his hero Ayrton Senna's many successes with the Japanese marque on-board his McLaren. Verstappen took third in Melbourne, Honda's first F1 podium in over a decade.
Having split the Ferrari pair Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc in qualifying, Red Bull star Verstappen closed down the ailing German and overtook him to secure third place, putting Honda back on the podium for the first time since the 2008 British GP.
