This weekend, the F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix took place, with Lewis Hamilton projected to win until the very last lap. Close to the end of the race, a car crashed on the track and a safety car had to circulate the track.

The safety got sent around and the distance between the two drivers changed slightly, and prior to the crash, Hamilton hadn't stopped for new tyres but second place Max Verstappen had. This meant that the two had to race off with only one lap left, one with new tyres and one with old.

Hamilton, who's won seven championships and has been called the GOAT of F1, lost by less than 2.5 seconds to 24-year-old Verstappen, resulting in one of Formula One's most controversial races.

As the whole world continues to argue whether Hamilton was robbed, and whether Verstappen is the new GOAT, we're taking a look at the two F1 champions' fits off the race track.

There's no doubt that Lewis Hamilton has cemented himself as a fashion guy, attending this year's Met Gala, modelling for Balenciaga, and a collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger under his belt.

Over the past few years, he's experimented with new styles and brands, ranging from streetwear labels such as Off-White™, Stüssy, and Fear of God, to luxury players including Gucci, Balenciaga, and Bottega Veneta.

His off-track style is one that is always turning heads, and his recent experimentation should definitely be rewarded.

As for Max Verstappen, the guy doesn't have much drip when it comes to his wardrobe. But, perhaps drip isn't needed when you're crowned the new Formula One champion at age 24.

A quick scroll through Verstappen's Instagram will make it incredibly clear that the driver is sponsored by Red Bull, and it seems as if he's more than happy to continue to represent the energy drink whilst he's off the track.

With a love for shorts, a cap, and a sporty tee, Verstappen keeps it simple. There's not a piece of clothing that doesn't have Red Bull's signature logo, and we're here for it. Milk that sponsorship, baby!

But alas, all battles need a winner.

Max Verstappen might be the new F1 World Champion, but Lewis Hamilton wins in the style department.

Hamilton has become so much more than a race driver, his fashion has continued to develop and his philantropical efforts alongside it. He's continuously pushing for more Black representation, both across sports as well as other fields, and continues to be a powerful force.

Lewis Hamilton has this fit battle in the bag, but who knows, perhaps seven titles later, Verstappen could catch up.
