The 2018 Formula One season's penultimate race in Brazil this weekend was a dramatic one for many of the racers involved.

In qualifying, Lewis Hamilton was accused of 'blocking' Williams' Sergey Sirotkin.

Then, Hamilton went on to win the race in a car with an engine that was 'one lap away from blowing up'.

Finally, Red Bull's Max Verstappen was caught in a collision with Esteban Ocon while in the lead, ultimately costing him an impressive win.

The incident dropped the Dutchman back to second place, allowing Hamilton to swoop in and secure his 10th win of 2018, and a fifth consecutive Constructors' Championship for his team. 

Verstappen didn't hesitate in venting his frustrations after the race.

In his post-race interview, the Dutchman said: "You do everything right and then you get taken out when he is being lapped.

"The car was working great but I don't know what to say. I'm happy with second but we should have won.

"He has the right to unlap himself but still you have to be careful. He has always been an idiot."


However, it appears this weekend's incident isn't the first time the two racers have found themselves butting heads.

One Twitter user has posted a video which shows Verstappen pushing Ocon off-track at the start of a Formula 3 race in 2014

At a race in Austria, both drivers burst out the gates with Ocon in the lead before Verstappen steers him off course at the first bend.

Verstappen recovers, quickly carrying on the race in third place. However, the video shows Ocon being left in the dust.

The Frenchman Ocon got the better of Verstappen in the long run,  finishing the 2014 F3 season in first while the Dutchman placed third.

However, Verstappen has arguably enjoyed greater success over his rival since the step up to Formula 1.

It's clear the Dutchman isn't Ocon's biggest fan.
