Breaking: Lewis Hamilton could be awarded LAST year’s F1 world title with Verstappen and Red Bull involved in cheat storm



LEWIS HAMILTON could be sensationally handed LAST year’s world title after rival Max Verstappen’s Red Bull team were engulfed in a cheat storm.

Red Bull, bidding to celebrate Verstappen’s second title win here at the Singapore race tomorrow, have been accused of breaking F1’s cost-cap rules.


Mercedes chief Toto Wolff claimed it would be a “massively heavyweight” issue if Red Bull broke last year’s budget, which was set at £114million.

That could  see Verstappen stripped of the title he won last year in Abu Dhabi and Hamilton installed as winner for a record eighth time.


Wolff, Hamilton’s boss at Mercedes, was asked if it was serious or just usual F1 politics.

He replied:  “That’s heavyweight, that’s massively heavyweight. It was a huge, mammoth project to make the cap.


“I don’t know how many tens of millions we had to restructure processes to be below the cap.

“We are using used parts, we are not running what we would want to run, and we are not developing what we could be developing.
