Throughout the season, Verstappen’s charge against Mercedes had been absolutely stunning to watch; the driver was a worthy opponent to Lewis Hamilton. The 24-year-old gave us a season worth watching in 2021.

Yet, it all boiled down to the last race, with both the protagonists tied for points in Abu Dhabi. It was almost as if the races preceding them didn’t even matter. Verstappen lead 652 laps this season. At Abu Dhabi, he lead one; the final lap, the one that mattered.
