Max Verstappen Registers Epic Win Over Lewis Hamilton to Win F1 World Championship

Highlights:

  • Max Verstappen bagged his first-ever F1 World Title concluding a dramatic final lap
  • In the final lap, Lewis Hamilton was overtaken by Max at the Yas Marina Circuit
  • Hamilton had been trailed by Verstappen since the first lap in Abu Dhabi GP

Red Bull’s Belgian-Dutch racing driver, Max Verstappen earned his first-ever F1 World Championship title after defeating Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton in a dramatic showdown on Sunday at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. It was confirmed that Max was the F1 World Champion ahead of the FIA (International Automobile Federation) stewards turned down Mercedes’ plea over the result at the Yas Marina Circuit.

Mercedes who achieved the constructors’ title for the eighth consecutive season were enraged by the playout of the final lap of the race post-Williams Racing’s Nicholas Latifi’s crash evoked a ‘Safety Car’ period.

The title-deciding race was initiated at pole position by Verstappen who had been trailing Hamilton since the first lap but following Latifi’s crash, overtook him (Hamilton) in the final lap. The Dutchman pit for fresh tyres using the safety car while the British-origin Hamilton resorted to older tyres.

India’s T20 and ODI captain, Rohit Sharma also took to Twitter to convey his felicitations to Verstappen using cricket terminology. Sharma stated the championship resembled a situation when a batsman is required to score a sixer in a single ball to win and Verstappen did it.

He mentioned that Lewis might have won the trophy if it had not been for the safety car.
