Now, the championship fight will be settled in the final race at Abu Dhabi, with both drivers tied on points but with Verstappen’s Red Bull leading the way due to having nine wins over Hamilton’s eight.
Both drivers have 369.5 points right now, and it is only the second time in which two championship contenders will go to the final race of the year equaled on points, after Emerson Fittipaldi and Clay Regazzoni in 1974.
