Max Verstappen claimed an astonishing first F1 world championship title by overtaking rival Lewis Hamilton on the final lap of a hugely controversial Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi.  

Verstappen became the first Dutch champion in history and the first Red Bull driver to win a title since Sebastian Vettel in 2013.

When the Safety Car came in and the race restarted, Hamilton was powerless to stop Verstappen, who was racing on new tyres.

Verstappen screamed, "Oh my God, oh my God" on the radio as he won, later saying to his Red Bull team over the radio: "It's insane ... can we do this for another 10 or 15 years together."

Hamilton was denied an eighth championship.
