But Red Bull boss Christian Horner is taking nothing for granted — and he cannot relax until the appeal is officially dropped.
I don’t think it’s official until it’s official. But Max is world champ until someone says otherwise.
Hamilton’s Mercedes team were shocked at the decision-making of FIA race director Michael Masi in the final race of the season when he allowed some, but not all, of the lapped cars to overtake the safety car.
Max Verstappen coronation should be confirmed at an FIA gala tonight and rules state Hamilton, as runner-up, must also attend the gala in Paris.
Verstappen have described his win to Mercedes as very lucky.
Absolutely, the win was very lucky
I appreciate Lewis’ talent for sure, he is a very tough competitor, probably the toughest one I’ve had to fight.
People say it was a lucky win. Absolutely, the win was very lucky.
But we also have been very unlucky throughout the season, otherwise the championship would have been decided way earlier.
It was very painful for Lewis and I would also be hurt in the way he lost it.Max Verstappen said.
