Lewis Hamilton v Max Verstappen: Key moments in F1’s thrilling title battle

There was even a hint of what was to come in the tussle between the two when Verstappen forced Hamilton wide early on as the two raced side-by-side. This was the race where the tensions in the title battle really took off. Having started the British GP 32 points adrift of Verstappen, Hamilton finished it just seven behind. At this point, Verstappen’s lead over Hamilton was five points but neither driver was able to pick up an advantage from this race as their crash led to both retiring. Hamilton went on to win the race while Verstappen finished second despite being handed further time penalties, setting things up for Abu Dhabi.
