Lewis Hamilton’s defeat at the Formula One Abu Dhabi Grand Prix has left the nation devastated, including the likes of Piers Morgan and Gary Lineker. 

Hamilton, 36, was poised to eclipse Michael Schumacher’s record with an eighth world title, but suffered a crushing defeat against Max Verstappen, who won for the first time.

It was a narrow miss for the F1 star, who led the majority of the race and appeared to be coasting to victory just as the safety car was brought out following a crash in the final few laps. 

Reacting to Hamilton’s shocking loss, Piers simply tweeted: ‘OMG.’

Piers then applauded Hamilton’s classy post-race interview, and said: ‘Incredibly gracious . by ⁦@LewisHamilton⁩ – he’s such a class act on & off the track, and never gets the full respect he deserves for being one of Britain’s greatest ever sportsmen.’
