The 2021 season of F1 racing was one of the most dramatic and nail-biting in F1 history where we saw the champion Max Verstappen and his rival Lewis Hamilton going wheel to wheel surpassing their counterparts and teammates like they were driving an entirely different car.
The record-breaking dual didn’t lack controversies though as the constant aggressive and intense wheel to wheel racing between Lewis and Max gave birth to multiple crashes and ‘racing incidents’. The inconsistency of decision making on theses matters by race director and F1 stewards made it more dramatic off the track.
Even the season finisher which separated, Verstappen and Hamilton, the top 2 didn’t lack controversies. Race Director Michael Masi allowed the only the lapped car between Lewis Hamilton whose was at P1 and Max Verstappen who was at the P2 to unlap themselves prompting a one lap finisher which saw Max coming victories thanks to his fast soft tyre advantage after Nicholas Latifi’s crash.
