Massive drama in the Formula 1 finale in Abu Dhabi this morning.

Max Verstappen has taken out the World Championship after passing Lewis Hamilton in the final lap of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Motorsport commentator Bob McMurray told Mike Yardley after the dramatic finish in a thrilling season, the courtroom is the worst possible outcome.

“I have sympathies on both sides. I don’t know how it can possibly be redressed if they find in favour of Hamilton in the FIA courtrooms, but it’s a messy thing to end on what has been a very exciting, sometimes messy season.”
