Albon believes that Max Verstappen deserved the 2021 title

As reported by Motorsport.nl, the former Red Bull driver mentioned that Verstappen deserved to win the world champion in 2021. He stated that the Dutch driver was unlucky on many occasions throughout the season. But he got karma at the end of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

“I understand both sides of the story, but I have to say that I’m quite a bit religious. I feel like a lot of decisions or moments have gone against Max this year. Just look at Silverstone, Hungary, Jeddah, and even the first round here in Abu Dhabi.” said Albon.

“So yes, we were incredibly lucky at the last minute, but at the same time, I think we deserved that luck. Nothing against Lewis and Mercedes, but in a way, we got the karma that Sunday that we deserved as a team. In this way, most things can be crossed out against each other over a season.” concluded the soon-to-be Williams driver.

There is no doubt that Verstappen was the driver of the season in 2021. Despite some luck, he deserved his shot at the title and grabbed it with both hands. It would be interesting to see how the young Dutchman approaches the 2022 season after a relaxed off-season.
