Max Verstappen and Esteban Ocon have history – physical history – going right back to their karting days.
Always two sides to every story. Their latest contretemps came as Verstappen – having passed both Ferraris and both Mercedes – was leading, the race apparently under his control courtesy of a great drive and the Red Bull’s ability to treat its tyres so much more kindly than its rivals.
Ocon was running his Force India a lapped 16th but had just pitted for a new set of supersofts – and was potentially going to be able to run around 1sec per lap faster than the cruising, nine-lap old soft tyre pace Verstappen was setting.
