Max Verstappen admits he did not know he had won F1 title in Japan chaos

Red Bull’s Verstappen won the race at Suzuka, truncated to 28 laps after it had been delayed for over two hours due to rain, but did not know he had done enough to secure the championship until some time after climbing from his car. Across the paddock no one was quite sure whether full points would be awarded for the race or only three-quarters. “When I crossed the line I didn’t believe that we would have won the title because I also didn’t know if we’re going to get full points or not,” he said. “During the race I had no clue what they were going to decide with the points,” said Verstappen. “The plan was to win the race but once I crossed the line I didn’t know if it was full points, half points or 75% points because you’re reading through the rules.”.
