Max Verstappen vs Lewis Hamilton: How title fight swung and was ultimately won in an epic 2021 F1 season

You can argue he was too aggressive at times, but that aggression also saw him pull off some of the most impressive overtakes of the year, including his lap one move around the outside of both Mercedes in Mexico and his pass on both Hamilton and Esteban Ocon in Saudi Arabia.

Hamilton qualified and finished seventh at the street race on a weekend when his teammate Valtteri Bottas qualified third and was on target for a podium before a problem at his pit stop forced him to retire.

If this continues in the next few weeks, it will be exciting in the team.

POINTS: HAMILTON 138-156 VERSTAPPEN Austria: Perfection for Verstappen, dejection for Hamilton The second Austria race resulted in more of the same for Verstappen - who was perhaps even more dominant as he added the fastest lap bonus point to his collection from the previous weekend - while Hamilton hit problems.

After both suffering slow pit stops, Hamilton and Verstappen's races ended in the gravel at the first chicane after a frightening clash on lap 26 as the Red Bull attempted to overtake the Mercedes.

Over the balance of the races, Verstappen's Red Bull appeared to be the faster car, yet Hamilton ground out enough results that he would have been crowned champion had the end of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix been handled correctly.

Hamilton converted his dominant pole into a runaway and crucial win to strengthen his hopes of winning a record eighth world title.

Verstappen looked in danger of losing significant points prior to the race as he was required to start from the back of the grid after Red Bull installed a fourth engine of the season in his car.

Schumacher's incident brought out the red flag though and Verstappen, who led the restart having stayed on track, pushed Hamilton wide after his title rival got off the line quickest.

Hamilton was in complete control when Mick Schumacher crashed into the barriers on lap 10, with the Brit pitting under the subsequent safety car.

It was the championship tussle the Formula 1 world had long been waiting for - and it certainly did not disappoint.

Hamilton started second for the race restart and looked set to pass Perez into Turn One, when he inadvertently switched a brake switch on his Mercedes steering wheel and missed the corner completely.

By the end of the year he finished in sixth place behind Carlos Sainz in the standings, but that only tells a small part of the story of his season.

Red is well aware how important Lambiase is to Verstappen.

Not that Hamilton looked set to reverse recent momentum, having sprung an upset to take pole.

Description: And that played out through much of the weekend, with Verstappen comfortably on pole and ahead in the race in the early stages.

That would controversy would run to the next race in Qatar.
On the basis of his performances at Williams, his arrival at Mercedes next year should see him join the top two on this list in the fight for the title assuming the car is competitive enough.
While Verstappen scored maximum points atwinning the sprint qualifying, putting in the fastest lap of the grand prix and winning the race ahead of his team-mate Sergio Perez, Hamilton had a weekend to forget.
