Verstappen ends F1 season with 15th win
Max Verstappen has won a record-extending 15th race of the year at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to conclude one of the most dominant seasons in Formula One history.
A year on from Verstappen’s tense and controversial win over Lewis Hamilton to seal his first title, there was little drama at the Yas Marina Circuit on Sunday.
Verstappen stayed ahead of his teammate Sergio Perez at the start and was never seriously challenged after that on his way to the win.
Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc held off Perez’s challenge on old tyres to finish second and clinch second place in the championship standings, thwarting Red Bull’s bid to have its drivers place first and second.
