The final lap of the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix will be remembered forever. It was a fitting, albeit controversial, finale to a thrilling season.

Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton were tied on points going into the final race, so whoever finished ahead of the other would win the title.

Hamilton dominated the encounter until a Safety Car gave Verstappen the opportunity to take the lead at the restart.

The Dutchman took full advantage of the circumstances and his Soft tyres to go up the inside of Hamilton at Turn 5, before fending him off for the rest of the lap to become the new World Champion.
