Red Bull's Max Verstappen won his first Formula 1 world title in dramatic circumstances at the season finale in Abu Dhabi.


His rival Lewis Hamilton had appeared in control of the race, despite controversy on the first lap, until a late safety car.


The race was restarted with one lap to go with Verstappen on fresh tyres and Hamilton on old ones and the Dutchman swept by to win the race.


It was in many ways a fitting way to end one of the greatest and most contentious seasons in Formula 1 history - and the arguments over right and wrong will rage for some time to come.


At the end of the race, while Verstappen screamed with delight and Red Bull celebrated, Hamilton sat in his Mercedes for several minutes, disbelieving at the way events had turned against him in the final minutes.
