Formula One fans criticized Red Bull’s Max Verstappen on social media for nearly causing another clash between him and Lewis Hamilton by forcing him to fight his way through the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Reigning F1 champion Hamilton sealed an impressive comeback in Sao Paulo on Sunday, battling from 10th on the grid early in the race to finish at the top of the podium and keep his title chances alive.

The Mercedes driver eventually passed Verstappen on lap 59, but the drama came 11 laps early when the Red Bull driver forced Hamilton off the track when the latter threatened to dodge him.

Both drivers left the track before accelerating again, but Formula One fans blamed Verstappen for more dangerous driving that led to another clash between title rivals.

One fan reacted by saying, ‘Idiots will actually say Verstappen is a good racer … he can’t hack wheel-to-wheel so he forces cars off the track …’

Another tweeted: ‘Verstappen is F1’s greatest unsportsmanlike driver. Clearly beaten and to save position, Lewis walks away wide. Show the replay of the cockpit.

Meanwhile one fan said: ‘Verstappen STILL again forces Hamilton off the track the last time he crashes into him, how many times will this driver get away with it? It didn’t look like he had tried to turn the corner. losing a lot of respect with Horner ‘

Another tweeted: ‘Verstappen is on board. It was clearly unnecessarily expanded and somehow not penalized. Lewis did an amazing job of not making contact with this crazed jerk. ”

The lap 48 incident was investigated and no sanctions were imposed on the drivers, with a decision made around five laps later.

When his team informed Hamilton that no action would be taken, the Mercedes driver was heard saying, “Of course, of course.”

Other fans were stunned by the failure to sanction Verstappen for dangerous driving in Sao Paulo.

Hamilton finally passed Verstappen on lap 59 and held on to victory in Sao Paulo.

One fan tweeted: ‘@fia is shocked by the stewards’ decision that Verstappen deviated in overtaking Hamilton. Max clearly took Lewis off the track.

Another posted: ‘Back at Silverstone, Hamilton swerved, ended up serving Verstappen and received a penalty. Verstappen swerves wide, Hamilton avoids it and receives no penalty. I am totally in favor of ‘Let them race’, but the FIA ​​requires consistency ”.

One fan stated: ‘I would love to see Max win his first title, but that was a clear 5 second penalty. Unless they can show us an angle from the cockpit that shows Max struggling with severe understeer, which the coverage hasn’t, it was an unfair move. ”

Another said: ‘I hope you know this is so much more than a Max vs Lewis thing. Those decisions the FIA ​​makes set a precedent for what is allowed and what is not allowed in racing. If you allow crazy things like that, then that’s what racing will become. ‘

Hamilton and Verstappen have history this crash season, an event that almost happened at Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix.

Back at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in July, Hamilton slashed the Dutchman at Copse’s corner, ruling out the Red Bull driver from the race. The Briton won despite receiving a 10-second penalty for the incident.

Then, at Monza, it was Verstappen who was penalized for a collision with Hamilton that knocked both drivers out of the race, and the Dutchman’s steering wheel passed over the Mercedes driver’s head in a near-fatal incident.

Hamilton’s injuries were limited to neck pain and headaches, while Verstappen imposed a penalty of three grills for the Russian Grand Prix, which the Mercedes driver won by 53 seconds.
