Force India Formula 1 driver Esteban Ocon tangled on and off the track with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen who was leading at the time in the Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix, taking victory away from the Dutchman
After the race the team bosses began clashing as conspiracy theories grew.
On lap-44 of the race, car 44 of champion Lewis Hamilton cruised past the spun car of Verstappen to take the lead and eventually win in Brazil. Had this been a racing incident or individual error, little would have been said, but when backmarker Ocon was attempting to unlap himself on Verstappen, it became a different kettle of fish.
“I think that the lead car has just lapped a Force India and it clearly, you shouldn’t interfere as a lapped car with the leader and you know, what on earth Ocon was thinking about there just beggar’s belief,” said Red Bull team boss Christian Horner.
“They’re quick on the straight. We know that but why on earth is he racing the leader. He’s a lap down, he doesn’t have the pace. He’s chucked the car up the inside there. It just makes absolutely no sense at all.”
