Instead of watching the NFL slate of Sunday football games, Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid was tuned in on the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. And boy the Sixers big man made the correct choice as Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen battled it out in an epic F1 race.

Hamilton won the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix to set up a winner-takes-all finale with Verstappen in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The two are now tied in points at 369.5 each, with Verstappen’s tiebreaker advantage pretty much useless as whoever wins at the Yas Marina Circuit next week takes home the F1 championship as well.

Of course the race wasn’t without issues, with Verstappen given a five-second penalty during Sunday’s race for leaving the track and gaining an advantage. Embiid was not happy with it, but overall, he definitely enjoyed the epic duel between the two.

Lewis Hamilton has won the F1 title for the past four years, so it’s not surprising why he’s so motivated to win his fifth straight. If he does it, he’ll tie legendary driver Michael Schumacher’s record for the most consecutive championships.

Sure enough, with the narrative of Hamilton’s historic comeback and run or max Verstappen’s streak-killing attempt, Joel Embiid will be glued on his Television next week for the race. The Sixers do have a meeting with the Golden State Warriors next Sunday, but Embiid surely have enough time to finish watching how the Hamilton-Verstappen showdown will end.
