The seven-time world champion saw a controversial end to his last season in Abu Dhabi. But in Monza, under the same circumstances, the FIA allowed the safety car to end the race, which is the standard procedure. Mercedes were infuriated about it not being followed in 2021.
Talking about the Italian Grand Prix end, Hamilton emphasized the rules hall always be followed even if it kills the race end. Though, he also suggested that the governing body can extend the race if the race is getting over under an SC.
Meanwhile, he also said that he is glad the race ended without drivers competing. He revealed that he was on an older set of tyres against two drivers with comparatively fresher tyres.
