Lewis Hamilton slams F1 chiefs for ‘manipulating’ F1 title showdown with Max Verstappen after controversial Abu Dhabi GP

LEWIS HAMILTON has been heard labelling Max Verstappen’s dramatic Abu Dhabi GP win as ‘manipulated’ in a largely unaired radio message. Hamilton lost to Verstappen in heartbreaking fashion, seeing the Dutchman controversially pull in front of him with just one lap left to race. In the immediate aftermath of the race Hamilton was seen graciously congratulating Verstappen for his last-gasp victory. Just moments after being beaten, Hamilton said: “Firstly, congratulations to Max and to his team. Lewis Hamilton’s father, Anthony, was also praised for the way he congratulated Verstappen and his dad, Jos, after the race. That cued the barely believable action to unfold, as race stewards allowed five cars in between Hamilton and Verstappen to pass the Brit and unlap themselves.
