The call Masi should have made in F1's dramatic finale

OPINION: The 2021 Formula 1 season finale was the campaign in microcosm – packed with thrills and controversy. But it lacked integrity, even when there was an option for officials to maintain it. The championship, its worthy champion, his defeated rival and the rest of the competitors and its fans deserve better

Let's get this clear immediately: Max Verstappen is a worthy and excellent 2021 Formula 1 world champion and congratulations to him and his Red Bull team for the season they produced together. His is a supreme talent that deserves titles.

He crossed the line into unacceptable driving at times with some of his moves against Lewis Hamilton this year, but that doesn't take away from his speed and determination, which deserved to be rewarded with a championship.
