Max Verstappen’s F1 title win ‘even sweeter’ as he beat a ‘fit and hungry’ Lewis Hamilton, claims Mark Webber

MARK WEBBER claims Max Verstappen’s F1 title win was ‘even sweeter’ as he beat a ‘fit and hungry’ Lewis Hamilton. Verstappen secured a controversial win in the season’s final race at Abu Dhabi to lift his first-ever Formula One crown. The Red Bull ace overtook Hamilton on the final lap following a safety car decision. And Verstappen has since been widely lauded for ending the Mercedes ace’s domination of the sport. But former Red Bull man Webber believes there was nothing holding the Brit back at Abu Dhabi, insisting Verstappen beat Hamilton in his prime. Webber declared: “He (Verstappen) was watching F1 for a long time, he saw Lewis dominating the sport and was like, ‘I want a piece of that’. Verstappen is absolutely phenomenal, and the sport should be embracing him.”.
