Mercedes post-title appeal suddenly in doubt

Max Verstappen has revealed that Mercedes boss Toto Wolff finally offered belated congratulations for his title win the day after Sunday’s epic and controversial 2021 season finale. While Lewis Hamilton and his father Anthony both personally congratulated the new world champion immediately after the race in Abu Dhabi, a furious Wolff chose instead to focus on first protesting and then vowing to appeal the decisions of race management. Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko goes a step further than that, saying an appeal against 24-year-old Verstappen’s first world championship would actually be “disgusting”. Verstappen said emotions were “very high” all round after the sensational last lap of the 2021 season, but he said he appreciated Hamilton’s immediate congratulations.
