Lewis Hamilton deserved to be world champion, says teammate Bottas

Hamilton was denied a record eighth drivers’ crown – and fifth in a row – after being overtaken by Verstappen in a nerve-shredding final lap at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, as the Dutchman claimed his maiden title. “It hurts that Lewis didn’t get the drivers’; I feel like I lost the championship because he lost it,” Bottas said on the official F1 website. “I really feel gutted for him because I feel like he deserved it.”. Bottas said: “Lewis had a great race and then things change like this. Meanwhile Sebastian Vettel, who won two of his four world titles in the final races in 2010 and 2012, said he felt sorry for Hamilton.
