It wasn’t a fault of his own but he still grabbed the headlines as it costed Lewis Hamilton the historic 8th world championship. Nicholas Latifi crashed out on the 54th lap of Abu Dhabi GP, the 2021 season finisher, which brought out the safety car and prompted a controversial un-lapping decision from race director Michael Masi eventually giving Max Verstappen the chance to secure his maiden world title.
