- Leclerc secures runner-up spot in drivers’ championship
- Hamilton ends season without a win after retiring late in race
After the bang with which Formula One ended last season in Abu Dhabi it was perhaps fitting that this year a somewhat anticlimactic season bowed out with a whimper at the Yas Marina circuit.
Max Verstappen took the season finale win with the same dominant, inch‑perfect execution that long since secured his second championship but it was another victory that only emphasised how much the sport has missed a genuine fight at the front of the grid.
