David Coulthard compares F1 to UFC and claims ‘anything goes’ after the chaotic Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on Sunday set up a mouthwatering season finale between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen in Abu Dhabi

David Coulthard believes the rules have gone out the window this season in Formula One, and has compared the sport to UFC following Sunday’s controversial Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Verstappen was handed a five-second penalty during the race for forcing Hamilton off the track, and the two cars then came together late on when the Red Bull driver broke suddenly to give first place back, which appeared to catch his counterpart by surprise. Verstappen was reprimanded afterwards as the stewards opted to give him a 10-second penalty, but this did not affect his final placing. It is hard to imagine the final Grand Prix of the season in Abu Dhabi being any more action-packed, but with Hamilton and Verstappen refusing to back down, it potentially could be. For the moment, Verstappen holds the slight advantage due to picking up one more win than Hamilton over the course of the season.
