Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen were at it once again during the Brazilian Grand Prix.

After a dramatic start that resulted in the safety car coming out after just one lap due to a collision between Daniel Ricciardo and Kevin Magnussen. Hamilton and rival Verstappen stole the headlines not long after the restart.
In lap six, Hamilton and Verstappen went wheel to wheel and the Dutchman collided with the Brit’s Mercedes, leaving Verstappen with a damaged front wing.

Shortly after the incident, Verstappen blamed Hamilton over his team radio, he said: “He left me no space.” Whilst Hamilton said: “That was no racing incident, mate.”

However, the FIA thought differently and handed Verstappen a five-second penalty, which ultimately cost the champion his race.

Lewis Hamilton eventually finished second, behind teammate George Russell who achieved his maiden Formula One victory after an impressive drive.

After the race, Hamilton was asked about his collision with Verstappen. The seven-time world champion said: “What can I say, you know how it is with Max.

Perez said after the race: “I was told to let him by and that I was going to get back the position. I don’t know what the complications were on his side.

“No idea, maybe you should ask him about it. Nothing to say really. After all I have done for him, it is a bit disappointing, to be honest. I am really surprised.”

Whilst Verstappen said: “I have my reasons for that. We just discussed that.

Next weekend, the F1 season will draw to a close after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Perez is in a tight battle for second place in the drivers’ standings with Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc.

“I think it was good that we finally just sat together and talked about it and basically just move forward from here.”
