Formula 1’s dramatic final-race title deciders

For only the second time in Formula 1 history, the two top drivers head to the final race level on points. An overtake at the final corner, on the final lap of the final race of the season to decide the title – it doesn’t come much closer than that. To enjoy Newsround at its best you will need to have JavaScript turned on. Much like this one, the 1976 F1 championship saw two greats battling it out all year before it all came down to the final race. With his rival out of the picture, fourth would be enough for Hunt to take the title and the win looked a mere formality as he led for much the race.
