Watch here: Lewis Hamilton loses Formula 1 World Championship title to Max Verstappen UK News

The title would have been an eighth record for Hamilton.

The Dutch world champion needed luck having been behind Hamilton throughout the race.

The race ended with a grueling final lap after a safety car intervened to deal with a Nicholas Latifi crash and Verstappen changed his tires.

He and leader Hamilton had a head-to-head race on the final lap which saw Verstappen take first place.

After the race Verstappen said: “It’s crazy. I don’t know what to say. I’m so happy for the team and for all these guys.

“I love working with them so much. Well today I was a bit lucky. My team knows I love them and I want to do that with them for the next 10 or 15 years!”
