Sao Paulo: Max Verstappen was ordered to perform two days of public service for his violent behaviour towards Esteban Ocon following Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix, the FIA announced.

The Dutchman pushed the Frenchman three times and threatened to punch him in the drivers weighing room after the race during which they collided, an incident which cost Verstappen the lead of the race.

He finished second for Red Bull beind world champion Lewis Hamilton while Force India’s Ocon was given a 10-seconds stop-go penalty.

Race stewards said “Max Verstappen is required to perform two days of public service at the direction of the FIA within six months of the incident.”
