The Dutch driver first attempted to attack Hamilton, but he ran out of the track and switched to Daniel Ricciardo.

The young driver who succeeded in passing Hamilton later tried to cross Sebastian Vettel with a late braking, but the German pilota was hit by the side. Both pilots were spinning on it. While Verstappen was fifth, Vettel was eighth.

Speaking after the race, the Dutch pilot said, "I could see that Sebastian had problems with his tires and I tried to stay inside with a late braking, I locked the tires and hit him.

"It's not what I want, but after it's something, it's easy to talk to, it's supposed to be unexpected, probably the best, but it happened ... It's my mistake."

"It's annoying because I've ruined the race myself, it's easy to say something when I'm in business, I could do better, there's not much I can do ... I was good, I messed up." said.

Verstappen, about the incident with Hamilton, said: "I got better and I came to the side, then I lost the car, maybe I was in a hurry."

"Things are not going well right now, so it was you, and now you have to reverse it."

"As I said, things are not going well, but I have to analyze everything and be strong to be stronger in the next race." said.

While Verstappen and Vettel were talking after the race, the Dutch driver said, "This will remain between us." said.
