Max Verstappen was furious with what transpired between him and Esteban Ocon whilst Max was in the lead.
With Verstappen and Red Bull being able to extract a lot more from the car and the tyres here in Sao Paolo, they took the attack to both Ferrari and Mercedes in the race.
Verstappen put in some brilliant moves, managed his tyres and after his pit stop was able to overtake Hamilton on the straight before Turn 1.
The young Dutchman then seemed to be in control of the race until that incident with Ocon, wherein Verstappen was lapping him and the young Force India driver ended up making the mistake of fighting the race leader and the duo ended up touching each other.
Verstappen and Ocon both spun as a result of the collision and Verstappen lost out on his race lead, with Hamilton reclaiming the spot, thanks to that error in judgement from Esteban Ocon.
Verstappen was visibly frustrated with what had just happened, shouting out ‘what a fu**ing idiot’.

Verstappen then showed Ocon the finger whilst getting back on track, in what has to be one of the most talked about moments of the season.

Ocon will be vilified during the post race press conference as he for sure now has cost Verstappen a Brazil grand prix win.
