The FIVE races that won Max Verstappen his second F1 title: Landing a psychological blow over Leclerc in Saudi Arabia, his finest drive in Hungary… and winning from 14th on the grid in Belgium

Max Verstappen won his second world drivers’ championship title in dramatic fashion with a last lap penalty from Charles Leclerc declaring him champion of the world in Japan. ‘We just had to play the long game,’ Verstappen said. Come Lap 43 he was back within a second of Leclerc and he was picking him off with ease. Part of the novelty of starting further pack appealing to the racer in Verstappen and by Lap 7 he was up to fifth. Heading to the ‘Temple of Speed’ Verstappen was under no illusion of the challenge facing him. This is Ferrari’s home race after all and Verstappen had never previously managed to finish on the podium at Monza.
