Last year’s Hollywood-esque finish to the F1 season was talked about for months.

Verstappen and Hamilton headed to the final race level on points. Verstappen started the race in pole position, with Hamilton starting just beside him. Hamilton overtook the Red Bull driver before the first corner and led most of the race until the final lap when Max went past Hamilton’s Mercedes to win the race.

Andrew Schultz said in his video that F1, like baseball, is not a fair sport. Later on, he explained what happened in the final stages of the race post-Nicholas Latifi’s crash. Schultz mentioned how race director Michael Masi’s controversial call to let Verstappen and Hamilton race for one final lap affected the race.
Schultz said“He [Michael Masi] makes the decision to let the cars in between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen lap. In other words, go in front of the caution car, essentially getting them out of the way so there can be one lap left of racing.”
“But he doesn’t let the other cars behind do it, okay, so he’s basically just like, move everybody out of the way. There’s one lap left for the championship. Let them go.”

Schultz further said that Mercedes’ strategy could have let Lewis Hamilton down and that they “didn’t play to win.” They also discussed how Hamilton was a gentleman, even after losing out the title to Max.
Former F1 has fired Lewis Hamilton a warning that Verstappen is likely to keep improving after his 2nd title win in Japan. Johnny Herbert compared Verstappen to the 7-time world champion, Michael Schumacher.
Herbert said to Sky Sports, “He (Verstappen) has built that whole team around him. They think and believe he is the best ever. I remember Michael Schumacher, it’s the exact same situation.”

He further added, “And he just gets stronger and stronger. That’s the terrifying thing for anyone who wants to try and beat him.”
Verstappen has already asserted his dominance this season winning 12 races so far. He’ll be looking to add to his race wins and break Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel’s record of most race wins in a season which stands at 13.
