The incident itself was nothing to write home about, Ocon tried to unlap himself by passing Max. However, he got it all wrong and a few moments later, the Red Bull and the Force India were pirouetting at the Senna S. Verstappen was able to recover and rejoin the race but the damage was done. A gleeful Lewis Hamilton needed no second invitation and took the lead and subsequent win.

Ocon was later penalised for the crash and was handed a 10-second stop-go penalty. However, Verstappen wasn’t finished with the Frenchman and he angrily confronted him in the weighing area. The shouting quickly turned into a one-sided shoving match with Verstappen being the aggressive one.
