F1 chiefs confirm they have launched a probe into controversial ending of the title-deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with ‘final decision’ to be revealed on March 18… and FIA verdict could even overturn the result and award the 2021 title to Lewis Hamilton

Formula One’s governing body said on Thursday it will announce in March, on the eve of the opening race in Bahrain, the outcome of an investigation into last season’s controversial Abu Dhabi finale. Should the FIA verdict rule in favour of Hamilton, the powers at be could even award the Mercedes star with his record-breaking eighth championship, given how he led the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on the final lap before the controversy ensued. For now, race director Michael Masi, 42, remains in post. But it would have been awful if the final race had ended under a safety car.
