Latifi crashed his Williams car with a few laps left and with Hamilton coasting toward an eighth F1 title. The incident led to a safety car and Max Verstappen overtook the seven-time F1 champion Hamilton on the last lap to win the title amid huge controversy. Although blameless Latifi was hounded online. Hamilton says “I don’t think there’s been a huge change or shift, or enough work that’s been done by these social platforms.”
