Anybody watch the F1 on Sunday? There was a 'coming together' between Esteban Ocon and Max Verstappen. It looked to me like Ocon made an ill-advised move to unlap himself and Verstappen cut across his bow to stop him. 50-50, more or less. Problem was, Max was leading the race and Ocon was a lap down.

But the thing that got my attention was the short video of Max pushing and shoving Esteban during the driver's weigh-in after the race. Ocon did the right thing and didn't fight back, just let the officials handle it. Max was given a community service penalty by the FIA. So be it...

BUT... I noticed Ocon was holding his helmet during the entire incident. Am I the only one who thinks it would have been absolutely EPIC if Ocon had swung the thing, caught Max up-side his overgrown head and knocked the barstard out cold? Ocon likely would have gotten a big penalty, maybe even a race ban... But he could forever look at Verstappen and smile, knowingly... PRICELESS!!!

I agree, it would have been EPIC. Max's ego is max(imum) ugly.
