Lewis Hamilton accused Max Verstappen of “testing him on the brakes” as the two faced off in the penultimate Grand Prix of the F1 season in Saudi Arabia.

Hamilton and Verstappen controversially collided

Verstappen was ordered to give back the place to Hamilton, but the pair then collided as the championship leader slowed down ahead of their rivals.

Red Bull argued that they were trying to surrender the place, but Mercedes apparently didn’t realize it, hence the minor crash.

Shortly after the incident, Hamilton: “He just tested me under braking. I just hit him, man, the wing is broken.

“He tested me on the brakes. I didn’t know what was going on. It was just dangerous driving.

“This guy is fucking crazy, man. “

There was drama from start to finish in the race, which started with the downfall of Mick Schumacher

Verstappen was given a five-second penalty for initially gaining the advantage by cutting the turn, with the incident in which Hamilton encountered him being investigated after the race.

Wolff stormed into the pit lane and eventually Verstappen relinquished the position with Hamilton taking the lead on lap 43.

The Briton won the Grand Prix, which was held for the first time in Jeddah.

“It was pretty hectic,” Verstappen said after the race.

“There are a lot of things going on that I don’t quite agree with but that’s how I tried to give my all on the track. However, I was still second.

Asked about the incident with Hamilton, he said: “I slowed down, I wanted to let him pass, I was on the right but he didn’t want to overtake and then we touched. I don’t really understand what happened there.

Hamilton’s opinion of the rapprochement differed from that of his rival. “I didn’t quite understand why all of a sudden he braked hard enough, then I hit him in the back, then he left and I got a message afterwards saying he was going let me through, so it was a bit confusing.
