Lewis HamiltonThe failure of the Formula One Grand Prix Abu Dhabi has left the country devastated, including those Piers Morgan and Gary Lineker.

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

It was a narrow omission for the F1 star, who has led most of the race and appeared to be on the lookout for victory as soon as the safety car was brought in after a crash in the final few laps.

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

After finding a few more words, the former Good Morning Britain presenter then added: ‘I don’t know what I just watched but it can’t be true. Hamilton was robbed, sure? # F1. ‘

Piers then clapped Hamilton’s luxury post-race interview, and said: ‘Extremely polite response by @LewisHamilton – he is a class act on & off the track, and never gets the full respect he deserves as one of the greats. Britain’s greatest sportsman.’

Sending his congratulations to Verstappen, he added: ‘As for this guy, he’s a great job but what a brilliant racer.

‘Whatever you think happened, that last lap maneuver was sensational. Congratulations @Max33Verstappen – a well-deserved champion in the greatest F1 season ever. ‘

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker shared Piers’ shocked feelings and tweeted about the results: ‘What a joke. It’s stinky. ‘

He continued: ‘Great and generous response from @LewisHamilton. He’s really special, on track and off it. Action class to the end.

‘Congratulations @Max33Verstappen on his first world championship. He is not to blame for the decisions. He’s an absolutely brilliant racer and gave us the best season ever. ‘

Hamilton has attracted an A-list audience in Abu Dhabi, including rappers Stormzy who had a hilariously chaotic interview with Sky Sports presenter Martin Brundle before the event began.
