Max Verstappen was present at the 2023 Honda 'Thanks Day' along with several other big names in the Red Bull family held at the Twin Ring Motegi.

The annual event has become a celebration for the car brand and its success in top class motorsport, after Red Bull and Verstappen sealed a third F1 World Championship together.

Last year Verstappen was presented with a valuable gift from Honda, in honour of his latest championship success.

Sergio Perez, Daniel Ricciardo, and Yuki Tsunoda were present at the event, which featured several activities including a karting race and demonstration runs.

Tsunoda did a demonstration run in a Brabham Honda BT16, while two-time Super Formula champion Tomoki Nojiri got an opportunity to drive the title-winning RB16B as part of the celebrations.

Eight-time MotoGP champion Marc Marquez was also present at the event, it being one of his final appearances with Honda before switching to Gresini Ducati in 2024.

Check out the celebrations below.
