Why was Last Year’s Event So Controversial?
If you’re an F1 fan, you’ll know that last year’s F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in 2021 was one of the most controversial in motor racing history. But why?
Taking place on December 12, 2021, this Grand Prix event saw an epic showdown between youngster Max Verstappen of Red Bull, in search of his first Drivers’ Championship, and Lewis Hamilton, who was trying to make history by becoming the first driver in the history of the sport to win 8 Drivers’ Championships. Not only that, but the race would also decide the Constructors’ Championship as well.
Both Lewis and Max had an impressive 369.5 points coming into the event, so it really was neck and neck. Hamilton started strong and led much of the race. He looked all but assured to win his 8th title when Verstappen overtook Hamilton on the final lap to take the lead and secure his first championship, following a hugely controversial safety car restart in the race’s final moments.
Following the race, an official inquiry was carried out, and it was determined that safety regulations at the time had been misapplied and that human error was to blame. Despite this, Verstappen’s victory still stood, as did Red Bull’s Constructors’ Championship win over Mercedes.
Who to Watch Out For?
Despite Max Verstappen already clinching the 2022 F1 Driver’s Championship, Ferrari still has a slim shot of clinching the Constructors’ Championship from Red Bull Racing, though it is highly unlikely.
Sergio Perez of Red Bull and Charles LeClerc of Ferrari will be two drivers to watch, as they are currently engaged in a battle for 2nd place.
Of course, if Ferrari can get good results in the lead-up to F1 Abu Dhabi, this could make the Constructors’ Championship battle very exciting indeed. However, if Red Bull performs in Austin, that battle will also be over.
The most likely scenario will be a battle for 2nd place, with Ferrari and Mercedes set to butt heads. However, one thing is for sure — the F1 pulls out all manner of twists and turns, so the season’s final month will surely not disappoint.
