During the 2021 World Cup Damon Hill he never made a secret of supporting Lewis Hamilton. Surely for reasons of nationality, perhaps also for personal affinity, the 1996 world champion has always had an eye for the Mercedes ace, even without trespassing into more blind and less objective cheering (sometimes he criticized Hamilton and defended Verstappen ).
As for Abu Dhabi, Hill would have liked a different outcome, with a race director not subjected to external pressures that perhaps influenced him in his judgment to split the four cars between Hamilton and Verstappen and give one more lap ‘racing‘at the Grand Prix. The former Williams and Jordan provoked Verstappen: “Max fans, what was the pleasure of winning like this? Was it a satisfying way to decide a championship? I would say no. It was an unfair ending: Masi only allowed some cars to split, and this in itself is not correct.“, He told Sky Sports UK. “I don’t think you can manage a Formula 1 race or a championship in this way: you have to apply the rules in the same way for everyone“.
“I think in the end Hamilton fans, as well as Mercedes and the driver himself feel very offended and with reason they consider themselves robbed“, Concluded the British. “If Masi was manipulated? It’s a strong adjective, but in a way yes, because it succumbed to pressure from both sides, but perhaps more to trying to allow Max to catch up. And this is what led to the decision to split only the cars between the two contenders“.
