Max Verstappen and Esteban Ocon came together for a second time on Sunday after the Dutchman confronted the Force India driver after the race. Verstappen was upset with Ocon after the two collided on the circuit during the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Verstappen was leading the race after extending his first stint, pitting and overtaking on tyres that were one step softer and 16 laps younger. Verstappen had then lapped Ocon on the super soft tyres, but the Frenchman tried to come back at his former F3 rival.

Ocon tried to go around the outside at Turn 1, and when Verstappen turned in for the next corner, the front left tyre of Ocon, which sent them both into a spin. After the race, Verstappen got aggressive with Ocon as they were being weighed.

BBC pundit and former Grand Prix driver Jolyon Palmer said: "Ocon was in 16th position. For race position, it's a bad move. When you're a lap behind, it's an outrage. That is the worst bit of driving I've seen."

    Dumb ass thing of Verstappen to do. He has everybody on his side during the race, because Ocon was the dumb ass there. But what Verstappen does after the race makes him the bigger dumb ass.

    • Enough control that you don't assault your opponent. If you do, then there are penalties and that's it. Not a huge deal. But he was probably one punch away from a race ban or some massive fine. This is not effing Nascar. Fighting for show is not part of the sport.

  • Oscar-worthy acting by Ocon there, as if he prepped his response for this very likely occurrence. Shows Ocon being smarter off track. VER should've just told him he hoped he would stay out of a 2019 drive.

      Max will learn from this and it's actually an very cheap price to pay for situation. Next time when there is an championship at stake he will make sure that he doesn't get caught by this type of action of a lesser driver.
