Verstappen and Hamilton go into F1 season finale level on points

The official video game of Formula One has had a go at predicting the outcome of the most thrilling title races in years.

Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are tied on points heading into the final race of the season, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday.

The two have gone wheel to wheel all season long with fans thrilled by the drama on and off the track.

It all comes down to Sunday's race with F1 2021 simulating a version to give some idea of what may unfold.

They predict that Verstappen will take pole position in qualifying before dominating the race.

With few opportunities to overtake at the Yas Marina Circuit, Hamilton is forced to settle for second with Verstappen's Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez coming home third.

Mercedes do win the constructors' title, however, in a small consolation to the seven-time world champion.

"Max and Lewis have provided some of the most dramatic racing ever witnessed in Formula 1. We couldn't have wished for a better end to the season, and now it comes down to one final showdown for the title,” said Codemasters' Paul Jeal.
