Max Verstappen would have won race if he had let Esteban Ocon through | Giles Richards
The feisty Dutchman cost himself victory in Brazil and caused a lot of trouble by not letting the Force India driver unlap himself
Young, feisty, uncompromising, unapologetic and talented – we already knew that about Max Verstappen but it turns out he is sweary too and not adverse to being a tad fighty. If he is auditioning as a role model for teenage rebels, this wild one may as well be fitted for his “What’ve you got?” leathers now.
Yet for all the uproar and condemnation of his altercation with Esteban Ocon at the Brazilian Grand Prix, the incident, a moment of public emotion increasingly rare in F1, should be the least of his regrets after Sunday’s race.
