If you think of the circumstances of Prost v Senna, Senna v Prost, or Schumacher v Hill in title deciders, last season was at least different in that the final race was driven utterly cleanly by Max - and his performance throughout much of the season (sadly I wouldn't say all of it) was impeccible.What a sorry state of affairs all round. This is effectively now confirmation that Hamilton was indeed robbed of his championship win and it will forever taint the championship title now held by Verstappen.
As much as I feel Lewis had a result taken from him - if Latifi hit the wall 3 laps earlier it would likely have been a clear cut Championship for Verstappen with no (or at least less) capacity to complain. As much as circumstances robbed Hamilton of a title - they also robbed Max of a smudge free one too in some ways.
So, I think time will be kind to Verstappen overall. He will undoubtedly win more titles and hopefully put any questions to bed with mostly clean seasons to back it up.
