(Pocket-lint) - The 2021 Formula 1 season certainly had its drama and even after the season ended, the drama continued. A controversial final lap that saw Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton lose a record-breaking 8th world title to Red Bull's Max Verstappen has been the talk of the sport for months since it happened.

Netflix's Drive to Survive season 4 is now out and covers some of the events, though Max Verstappen refused to take part in the series this time round, so you don't see it from his side really.

Don't worry though, there's another documentary that promises to tell the story of one of the most remarkable F1 seasons in history too. This is everything you need to know about Duel: Hamilton vs Verstappen, including how to watch it, when parts one and two are available to watch and what it is promising to reveal.
