Race director Michael Masi ignored safety car rules and set up a single-lap shootout which which led to rival Max Verstappen taking the crown.

Masi has been under pressure since, with the results of an FIA inquiry due ‘some time this week’.

Mercedes and Red Bull’s team principals – Toto Wolff and Christian Horner – were in London for an annual F1 Commission meeting but ‘barely any progress’ was made.

Despite the disappointing end to the season, Hamilton has won SEVEN world titles.
