Honda chairman Seiji Kuraishi expressed his thanks to Verstappen for winning back-to-back world titles while Honda Racing president Koji Watanabe turned over the keys to the grey NSX Type S.

Verstappen said: “It’s an amazing car, so [I’m] very proud to receive it. Thank you very much.”

He then took his new car for a spin on the track.

Red Bull are due to celebrate their Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship victories with the people of Milton Keynes in December.

Team principal Christian Horner said: “We are enormously proud to base our Technology Campus in Milton Keynes.

“Ever since we moved into the small factory that we started with in 2005, the local community has supported the Team through all the highs and lows.

“Oracle Red Bull Racing has grown massively since then and this year’s phenomenal results wouldn’t have been possible without that support.

“It’s only fitting that we celebrate this record-breaking season with the community we cherish and in the heart of the city we are happy to call home.”
