Mad Max Verstappen confronts 'idiot' Esteban Ocon after Brazilian Grand Prix collision

Sainz wouldn't rule out Hamilton driving for Ferrari

Five-time world champion Lewis Hamilton won the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday, helping his Mercedes team to take the Formula One constructors' title.

Verstappen was furious about the incident and after threatening to act on his anger over the radio - saying "I hope I don't see him in the paddock because." before the censors intervened with a long series...

Verstappen and Ocon were involved in a confrontation in the FIA weighing area after the race, with the pair shoving each other before going their separate ways. "It goes back a few years", Ocon said.

Asked about his collision with Ocon, Verstappen replied: 'We did everything today.

"He came out of the pits, I stayed behind him for almost two laps but I was much faster than him and the team advised me to unlap myself".

"What I am really surprised about is the behaviour of Max coming into the scales", Ocon told TV reporters after the race.

Verstappen said that Red Bull should be content with fifth place after a "good performance" at Interlagos.

Charles Leclerc finished seventh for Sauber ahead of the two Haas cars driven by Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen with Sergio Perez 10th for Force India. I was still pushing all the way through Turn 11 and he was very slow preparing for his lap.

"Respectfully, between all the drivers, we all do respect [the gaps] - I could have tried to overtake Valtteri, or Valtteri whoever was in front of him". They both were turned around because of it and Hamilton would have been grinning ear-to-ear in his cockpit as he passed the stranded Red Bull.

The Finn, from third, swept past Vettel to take second behind Hamilton, giving Mercedes an early one-two, but with Verstappen preparing a storm from fifth and Ricciardo from 11th.

Mercedes, unexpectedly, were the first to blink when Bottas pitted after 18 laps and Hamilton after 19, re-joining ninth and seventh respectively on mediums, handing Verstappen the lead.

Ferrari needed 13 points more than the Silver Arrows to keep the constructors' battle alive heading into the final round of the season, but Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen were unable to deliver.

"He's driven his heart out with a damaged auto".

Horner said Ocon, as a backmarker, had absolutely no right trying to race Verstappen.
