The Esteban Ocon-Max Verstappen incident attracted a lot of eyeballs post the Brazilian GP, as Max went into shove Ocon post the race, as the duo had collided on the 41st lap of the race when Ocon was trying to un lap himself.
Verstappen was visibly furious after the incident, as he showed Ocon the finger and then confronted him post the race.
Ocon was taken aback by Max’s actions and felt that he wasn’t very professional with how he dealt with the situation.
Ocon then went onto explain that he was well within his rights to un lap himself, as he was faster and was on fresher tyres and that point of the race.
FIA had announced a 2 day community service ‘punishment’ for Verstappen for the incident.
Now, not a lot of the drivers had addressed the media about the same, and with both Ocon and Verstappen in the same press conference group for this weekend, it was only obvious that the other two drivers be questioned about it.
Vettel and Raikkonen were asked what they made about the entire incident, and Vettel came up with a rather ‘unusual answer’.
“I don‘t know. Well I have an opinion but I‘m not sure if I should say what I think.” Vettel said.
Raikkonen said that ‘boys are boys and that’s how it goes’.
He said that it wasn’t really great advertisement for the sport, but it can happen in the heat of the moment.

Vettel and Raikkonen would be hoping they can end the season on a high, especially Kimi, who would want at least a podium finish in his last race for Ferrari.
