Of course the 2021 Formula 1 world championship wasn’t going to be resolved simply or without controversy.

In the Race F1 Podcast, Edd Straw, Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell unravel all the events of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – starting with the contentious handling of the final restart on which Max Verstappen successfully attacked Lewis Hamilton for the race lead and the world title.

As well as debating the controversy around race director Michael Masi’s decisions and Mercedes’ furious reaction and the ongoing legal fallout, we tackle the rights and wrongs of the first-lap incident between Hamilton and Verstappen.

But it’s not all about the rows, the on-track brilliance of the title rivals (and one of their team-mates), why Verstappen is such a worthy champion and all the best and worst drives further back in the field are also discussed at length.
