Max Verstappen, the 2021 Formula 1 Drivers’ World Champion, returned home to the Red Bull Racing Technology Campus to celebrate this year’s championship victory with his colleagues.

He returned to the team’s factory in Milton Keynes on Wednesday and received a hero’s welcome. The team members fired up orange flare guns to cover the new world champion in smoke. He embraced everyone present at the celebration and walked into the factory to celebrate with the team.

The 24-year-old Red Bull driver denied Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton an eighth crown in a controversial decider in Abu Dhabi on Sunday after a sudden change of the safety car procedure played into the Dutch youngster's hands on the last lap.

Mercedes protested on two fronts straight after the race, but have now confirmed that they will not pursue an appeal against the final result and Verstappen will stay as the confirmed F1 Drivers'  World Champion for 2021.
