Max Verstappen confronted and pushed Force India Formula 1 driver Esteban Ocon multiple times following the Brazilian Grand Prix after a mid-race clash cost the Red Bull racer a potential victory at Interlagos.

Verstappen looked on course to take his third win of the season in Brazil after passing Lewis Hamilton early in the second stint, pulling out a two-second gap over the Mercedes driver.

However, Verstappen lost the lead on Lap 44 when he was spun by Ocon, who was trying to unlap himself down the inside of Turn 2.

Racing with a damaged floor, Verstappen was unable to recover the lead, finishing the race second for Red Bull.

Verstappen vented his anger over the incident over team radio and said after the race he hoped he would not find Ocon, only to run into the Frenchman at the FIA weight checks.

Verstappen was filmed pushing Ocon multiple times before FIA staff intervened, with Verstappen then walking out of the room.
