‘What the f*** are you guys doing?’: F1 fans can’t believe how Max Verstappen finds out he has become WORLD CHAMPION in bizarre circumstances after truncated stop-start Japanese Grand Prix

Max Verstappen found out that he had become the two-time Formula One world champion in the most bizarre circumstances after an incident-packed Japanese Grand Prix. The Dutch driver needed to be told that he had retained his title after Charles Leclerc picked up a five-second penalty for cutting the track, meaning that he finished behind Verstappen’s team-mate Sergio Perez. Perez’s post-race interview had to be interrupted as the news broke of Leclerc’s penalty, with Verstappen awkwardly being re-summoned to be told of his feat, as the 25-year-old sealed back-to-back titles in hugely contrasting fashions. There was confusion following the end of a truncated Japanese Grand Prix, with points halved as a result of a shortened race, and many were unsure whether the Dutchman had done enough to seal the title.
