Last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix saw Verstappen pip Hamilton to the win after a Safety Car rule was incorrectly applied. As a result, he claimed his first championship and denied Hamilton an all-time record eighth.
Verstappen is now a two-time champion but, last week in Brazil, Mercedes won their first race of 2022 thanks to George Russell.
Verstappen’s row with teammate Sergio Perez and Hamilton’s intriguing dynamic with his teammate Russell will make the F1 2022 finale a must-watch.
