The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the Yas Marina Circuit threw up a hugely dramatic, and hugely controversial, title decider, as Red Bull's Max Verstappen stormed to victory ahead of Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton.

But it wasn't as straightforward as it sounds, as a late Safety Car reset the race and wiped out Hamilton's huge lead, while also giving Verstappen a chance to pit for fresh tyres...

With Hamilton's crushing defeat coming on the final lap of the race, a furious Mercedes lodged protests against the results, and the F1 world waits to see if they proceed with an appeal against those protests being dismissed.

If they go ahead, it lines up yet more drama as it means Verstappen's title win isn't set in concrete until a lengthy legal process is undertaken...

Analysing the controversial Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend are Formula 1 journalists Dieter Rencken, Mike Seymour and Thomas Maher, who also chat about the on-track action as Sergio Perez earned his Red Bull paycheque by keeping Hamilton behind to bring Verstappen back into play...

It's also goodbye to Kimi Raikkonen and Honda, while Dieter has an announcement to make ahead of 2022! All these topics and more on the new RacingNews365.com podcast!
