The end of the 2021 Formula 1 season was defined on the last lap of the Abu Dhabi circuit. Max Verstappen won his first championship and beat Hamilton in an unexpected twist.

When it seemed that the Mercedes racer was going to win everything, an accident on the track forced the appearance of the Safety Car and all the cars had to slow down. This allowed Verstappen to change his tires for new ones, giving him the advantage.

The Safety Car left the track just on the last lap of the race. That was the moment when Verstappen took the first position from Hamilton, winning the race and his first championship ever.
