FORMULA 1: MAX VERSTAPPEN IS CHAMPION OF THE WORLD

Dutchman Max Verstappen was crowned Formula 1 world champion this Sunday, by winning the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, at Yas Marina circuit, beating Briton Lewis Hamilton, in an absolutely frantic end of the race, after a « safety car» in the final laps, motivated by a mistake by Nicholas Latifi.

It wasn’t like the 1997 European GP between Michael Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve. It wasn’t like Australia 1994 between Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher either. Or like Suzuka 1990 between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.

But it was just as epic. Exciting. Indescribable. Naturally tense and even controversial. And unexpected in form.

The end of this season’s Formula 1 World Championship proved that it was all down to the last lap.

Everything looked set for Lewis Hamilton to overtake Michael Schumacher as the most titled ever in Formula One and his fifth straight career title since 2017, but Latifi’s crash, four laps to go, put everything on hold until the end. Mercedes won, but only the constructors’ world championship, while Red Bull returns to celebrate eight years after the last of Sebastian Vettel’s four titles, in 2013.
