‘He didn’t expect me to overtake him there!’: Max Verstappen reveals fresh details of how he beat Lewis Hamilton to the title on the final lap of the hugely controversial Abu Dhabi GP in brand new F1 documentary

Formula One world champion Max Verstappen has revealed fresh details on his title-winning lap in Abu Dhabi in a new documentary about his 2021 season. The Dutch driver is the subject of a new Viaplay series, and in it he reveals more about how he managed to overtake Lewis Hamilton in a controversial final lap of the season that saw him snatch the title from the Brit. ‘He (Hamilton) didn’t expect me to overtake him there,’ Verstappen said. Controversially, Masi allowed some but not all back-markers to unlap themselves and then withdrew the safety car early, allowing Verstappen to close the gap to Hamilton and attack him on the final lap of the race. This season, the pair will go head-to-head again as Hamilton looks to get revenge, and Verstappen tries to defend his title.
