Max Verstappen ran away with all the headlines in Brazil, despite Lewis Hamilton clinching the win and Mercedes winning the constructor’s championship.
The first part of the Max hooplah was around his supreme driving skills and how he managed to take the lead in the race from Lewis Hamilton. The second part of it had to do with the incident with Ocon, where in whilst lapping Ocon, Max and him touched, causing Max to lose out on the race lead.
The third part was post the race when Max and Ocon had an altercation, with the former pushing the latter and accusing him of taking away his hard earned race victory.
Now, right after the race, in the cool down room, Max was subjected to a slight lecture from Hamilton about how he shouldn’t really have risked fighting it out with Ocon, as Max had more to lose there.
Hamilton also explained that lapped cars could try and un lap themselves and hence Ocon was well within his limits to do what he was doing.
Verstappen then clarified that he wasn’t within his limits to come and crash into Max.
Max was clearly unimpressed with it but then did not quite make a massive fuss about it.

Whose fault do you think it was? And was Max right in fighting it out with Ocon, or should he have just backed out of it on and off the track.
The duo have now been summoned to the stewards with a judgement to be out very soon.
