- Italian GP finish contrasts with Abu Dhabi title finale
- ‘So only one time, in history, they haven’t done the rule’
Lewis Hamilton damningly observed how the safety car ending of the Italian Grand Prix stood in stark contrast to the conclusion to last season’s finale in Abu Dhabi, where he was denied an eighth title in controversial circumstances.
Max Verstappen won in Monza, the race finishing behind a safety car deployed five laps from the end when Daniel Ricciardo’s McLaren came to a halt on track. It took time to remove and there were too few laps then remaining for the field to catch the leader Verstappen and resume racing.
