Monster Energy calls Lewis Hamilton “the greatest racer in the history of Formula 1” and says Abu Dhabi showed his “ability to command the track and earn his ‘GOAT’ title”.
After the controversial end of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix that saw race director Michael Masi ignore the rules to create a situation that basically handed Max Verstapen the 2021 title, Mercedes’ long-time sponsor Monster Energy issued a statement congratulating Lewis Hamilton on his performance.
“Lewis Hamilton, the greatest racer in the history of Formula 1 and Driver of the Monster Energy-backed Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team, continued to be a dominant presence on the track at the World Title event in Abu Dhabi,” Monster Energy wrote.
“While the final race ended in controversy, the results still show Hamilton’s ability to command the track and earn his ‘GOAT’ title.”
In the press release, Monster Energy Chairman and CEO Rodney Sacks also praised the Briton.
“Lewis Hamilton has always competed and acted with class on and off the track, we will always be proud to be in his corner and support the best drivers of our time,” Sacks said.

“The entire Mercedes-AMG Petronas Team is made up of competitors who consistently set a high standard for what it means to be successful and we’re proud to have them wear the Monster Energy logo.”
Monster Energy went on to list the collaborations they had with Lewis up until now.
“Widely known as one of the best F1 drivers ever, with a record-tying seven world titles and a record 103 race victories under his belt, Hamilton joined the Monster Energy family at the start of the 2013 F1 season, when he signed for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team,” the statements continued.
“In 2017 Monster Energy and Lewis unveiled ’44’ – a signature drink named after Lewis’ race number with which he began his racing career, has won multiple championships, and currently races within Formula One.”
In the end, although the media is still speculating on whether the Briton will compete in Formula 1 in 2022, Monster Energy says he is already focusing on his return.
“After an intense and debated end to the season, Hamilton was able to finish in second place and is already gearing up to dominate in 2022,” the statement concluded.
