Afghanistan - Lewis Hamilton takes a win in Jeddah over Verstappen

(MENAFN- Khaama Press)

In one of the most dramatic Grands Prix in years, the race was stopped twice, featured three starts, and had an extraordinary series of events between the title contenders.

Lewis Hamilton hit out at his Formula One title rival Max Verstappen after the world champion won the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, describing him as unwilling to obey the rules and his driving as over the limit.

Hamilton took victory after an intense battle with Verstappen that saw the pair repeatedly clash on track as they vied for the lead.

Hamilton's win means the two drivers are now level on points going into the season finale at Abu Dhabi next weekend.

However, the pair will do so with no love lost after a chaotic race interrupted by stoppages, safety cars, and repeated incidents that forced the stewards and race control to intervene.

Verstappen, who took a penalty for his driving during the race and another following a stewards' investigation, was aggrieved and dismissive of the criticism from his rivals.
