And sInce we're talking about Jos, let's remember the 2001 Brazilian GP when, as a backmarker, he was being lapped in his Arrows by race leader JP Montoya in the Williams-BMW only to have Jos pull in behind and then run into JP...taking both cars out of the race.

After seeing more video, Max already passed Ocon in the middle of the start/finish straight (at this point the blue flag rule no longer stands). Ocon believed that he had the pace to push to and unlap himself. Ocon gained on Max and got within half a car's length. Going into the S curves Ocon was within half a car's length. Max then proceeded to squeeze him out. Unfortunately, Max had more to lose than Ocon. This is where Hamilton's comments have merit.
I'm still lost in words !

‘The Stewards therefore ordered that Max Verstappen is required to perform two (2) days of public service at the direction of the FIA within six months of the incident. (Penalty under Art. 12.3.1.c of the FIA International Sporting Code.)’

Reminded me of Irvine unlapping himself from Senna at Suzuka and Senna throwing a fist at Irvine after the race because he had the audacity to unlap himself. Although in that case Senna won the race (but got a suspended two race ban).

That was unreal. I've been watching F1 for a long time, and cannot remember the last time a back marker took out the leader. Maybe Coulthard on Schuey at Spa all those years ago?

Damned good race again actually!

Ocon wanted to actually have an impact on the outcome of a race before his F1 career ends in a couple of weeks

Not that I condone some violent interactions between drivers, but I would do the same or similar if I'm in Max's shoes.
What's the point of "unlapping" himself? It's not like Ocon can pull away fast enough not to get another blue flag by Turn 4. He has the right to do it, but doesn't mean he should "fight" Max to unlap himself.

In hindsight, I sorta agree with Hamilton, when Max has the most to lose. Next time he can play a bit more cautious and let those amateurs make their statement.

I saw that clip, and here is my take on it.

Max didn't had to leave him space, but taken his position in the race into consideration, it was probably the right thing to do.

Max is a brilliant driver, but he lacks a lot ito maturity and being level headed.

He will soon learn though, that without those traits, becoming a world champion will be impossible. He actually reminds me a lot of Montoya.

See my post above. Things like these deminish him in my eyes as a worthy champion. He must just be careful, not all drivers will be as calm as Ocon. Think particularlyof people like Perez, Magnusson etc, they will certainly push back.

The whole world saw that Ocon did the opposite !


Ocon was unlapping himself, Verstappen was being deficult on purpose.

Apparently, the two has had bad blood between them for ages......

He was fined and sentenced to three months probational, suspended prison sentence.[34]

After a 1998 incident in a karting track, in which a man suffered a fractured skull, Verstappen and his father were found guilty in court of assault but were each sentenced to five-year suspended sentence after reaching an out-of-court settlement with the victim.[35]

On 29 November 2011, the media reported allegations that Verstappen had assaulted his ex-girlfriend; Verstappen claimed to only have had a discussion with her.[36] In January 2012, he was arrested on attempted murder charges following accusations that he drove a car into his ex-girlfriend in Roermond,[37] but released two weeks later, after the charge was withdrawn.[38] Verstappen and his ex-girlfriend, Kelly van der Waal, got back together and got married in 2014. They have one daughter, named Blue Jaye, born in September 2014.[39] They divorced on 20 June 2017.

Wow
