LEWIS HAMILTON missed out on F1 title glory to Max Verstappen in controversial circumstances last month.
Lewis Hamilton doesn’t expect the FIA to overturn Max Verstappen’s title triumph, according to reports. F1’s governing body are due to publish their findings on the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix later on Monday. Michael Masi’s future is currently uncertain, with some figures within the sport calling for him to be axed.
Hamilton was a mere lap away from securing an eighth title that would have seen him eclipse Michael Schumacher’s record.
However, a safety car incident then paved the way for Verstappen to reign supreme instead.
Both Hamilton and Mercedes were furious with the decision to give the Red Bull star the title, believing Masi made serious errors on the day in the Middle East.
On Monday, the FIA are due to present their findings on the matter – though the results may not be published until the eve of the 2022 season in Bahrain in March.
F1’s governing body have spent the last few weeks interviewing everybody involved and there’s a chance Masi may lose his job as a result.
Yet the Telegraph say that, when it comes to overturning the result, Hamilton isn’t getting his hopes up.
