Although the F1 2021 season is well behind us now with Max Verstappen becoming the first ever Dutchman to win the coveted title, the brouhaha over the diabolic season finale is refusing to die.

However, Hamilton’s ardent fans are refusing to go down without a fight. A petition which has asked for Hamilton to be named the champion for the 2021 season has now gone onto cross 40,000 signatures as retirement reports of the Briton continue to come up.

“I believe that justice was not served on Sunday December 12, 2021 when the FIA stewards denied Lewis Hamilton of his win of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix,” Patel Gordon-Bennett who began the petition wrote in it.

“With less than one lap remaining, some lapped cars were allowed to pass the safety car, which does not comply with the rules of the F1 sport.

“This gave rival opponent Max Verstappen the opportunity to overtake Lewis Hamilton and win the Grand Prix.

“If you are an advocate of justice, honesty and fairness, please sign this petition.

“Leaving this decision as it stands will send a very wrong message to youngsters and future racers,” he continued.

Meanwhile, Hamilton has gone onto unfollow everyone on social media platforms with him continuing to remain silent since failing to win what would have been a record eighth title as rumours of him eyeing retirement continue to spring up.
