A miracle is what was needed by Verstappen, and a miracle is what he got. Regardless of how things happened in the very last lap, everything started when a safety car was introduced some laps earlier, giving the team from Milton Keynes a sliver of hope.

 

 

This is something that the 2021 champion’s father, Jos Verstappen, also agrees on. He said, “We found ourselves in a position to be able to attack because of the safety car.”

“But the overtaking had yet to materialize. I think the team has worked out a good strategy, calling him immediately to the pits. They did a lot of very good actions over the course of the season.”

 

 

The final lap incidents at the Yas Marina Circuit were inarguably controversial and probably unfair to an extent.
