Max left no room there for Ocon.
He was a backmarker! He had no business there.
Backmarkers are allowed to unlap themselves. Verstappen knew he was there and just turned into him.
Unlap yourself doesn't equal fighting side by side into the apex IMO. If you can breeze past on the straight and pull away fair enough, but they shouldn't be battling into the corners to unlap themselves.

I dunno that Seb's engine is going to make it to the end, he just seems to be going slower and slower, lap by lap...

Kimi's still in play if Hamilton is managing the engine.

Amusing to see people who "want racing" criticise Ocon's move.

Why the Stewards penalised him I just don't know ( "he was alongside and deserved space" )

I support Hamilton, but that was one lucky win, with no special pace throughout.

So gutted for Verstappen, I will not miss Ocon if he will no longer get a seat in F1.

What a race. So entertaining. Verstappen had it in the bag, but his old habits of not giving enough room, not being sensible in wheel to wheel combat cost him. When will he learn? Not sure. Of course Ocon shouldn't have fought there, but he was just setting up for a good exit and Max just cut him off.
Vettel was nowhere, Kimi outclassed him today. So happy for Lewis. I foresee he will be the underdog next year. You can see that Redbull is coming, and Ferrari with Leclerc and Vettel are going to be tough. So for lewis, it's rack up the wins while he still can imho.

Max is understandably upset, but no point stewing over it. Racing can be a cruel sport, pretty sure he'll have plenty of success and a few disappointments along the way.

Driver of the day by a country mile, and his time will come if he gets a consistently competitive car under him.

Ocon probably played the Merc game by trying to hold up Max, but went very wrong.
Good thing Ocon is not driving next year.

I'm sorry but no way that was his fault. I will certainly would've done the same in his place, I wouldn't expect a backmarker to do that AFTER he was passed, no way. It's not like Ocon had the better pace, just that on that sequence, after the straight line, he was close to him.

Max didn't need to fight Ocon unlapping himself. Whether or not Ocon should have been doing it is irrelevant, once he saw Ocon there he should have given him the space. He was comfortably ahead of Hamilton at the time, and if Ocon had been slower he would have got blue flags.

It may have compromised his pace over immediately fighting, but risking a collision when he had the race in the bag was an error in judgement.

I feel like it was Ocon's fault but Verstappen is not completely blameless in my opinion. Obviously he had to know Ocon was there in turn 1. Surely he could have checked his mirror?

Verstappen's previous misdemeanours are meaningless in the context of assessing Ocon's move. It was a stupid piece of driving that harked back to the Jarier days.

Yeah, Ocon should have never been there the first place but it would have been wise for Max to be a little more cautious, especially considering the circumstances. He had it in the bag at that point.

Exactly, Verstappen is usually on the side of being the one with everything to gain fighting those with everything to lose (ie, Vettel and Hamilton) - this time he was the one with everything to lose and Ocon had everything to gain.

Backmarkers are entitled to unlap themselves if they are faster. Ocon was alongside and Verstappen shouldn't just expect him to disappear.

Verstappen's behaviour afterwards is just embarrassing. He really is a poisonous individual.

It's interesting watching people having a different position on similar incidents when different drivers are involved.

I can't imagine if that was a Sauber driver and a Ferrari driver benefited like this.

wow, just realised that hamilton will have over 400 points if he finishes 1st or 2nd next race. That will be the first time a driver has ever got that many in a season.

Verstappen assumed because Ocon was getting lapped, he would slow down but Ocon continued on his pace. Shouldn't Verstappen seen his mirrors or just been cautious enough to give him some room nonetheless?

Will Verstappen face some heat for physically shoving a driver? I doubt but it could've gotten more violent!

In the heat of the moment I would've done the same honestly, especially with that smug face of the Ocon that looks he doesn't understand where he went wrong. If he would actually apologize that would change things, not sure if he did...
Back in the days it was exciting when they were getting physical of the track, they were 'real' drivers, now they're 'immature' if they manifest like that.

Not trying to sound like a hater or anything, but it's just very hard for me to root for Max at any point. He has incredible talent, but he goes about everything like a spoiled child. He really has some maturing to do.

I certainly feel for Ocon. He most certainly looked faster at that stage. The speed he approached him was so much that I see no reason at all why he couldn't un lap himself. He went more that fully along side. Verstappen was just ahead on the corner, but Ocon was still there and Verstappen just looked to ignore him. I just don't see why drivers at the front should have the right to just ignore the positioning of the lapped cars. I just hate these rules. Ocon maybe should have kept trying in the corner, but Verstappen also could have been far more observant about what is next to him. Fair enough that Ocon got a penalty, but getting the harshest one possible is too much to me.
