Following a dramatic incident with his Mercedes teammate at the first corner of Sunday's Qatar Grand Prix, an enraged George Russell lashed out at Lewis Hamilton.
Max Verstappen, elected world champion for the third time after Saturday's sprint, began his title parade by winning his 14th race out of 17 thus far.
Oscar Piastri of McLaren finished second after winning the 19-lap race on Saturday, while Lando Norris of McLaren completed the podium.
However, Verstappen's dominant victory and McLaren's ongoing recovery were overshadowed by Hamilton's collision
with Russell, which left the seven-time world champion in the gravel. Russell battled his way from last to fourth place.
Hamilton, third on the grid, attempted to drive around the outside of pole-sitter Verstappen and Russell, who started one spot higher. However,
Hamilton tagged Russell's machine on the front left. Hamilton spun out of control, sending the right rear wheel of his Mercedes hurtling into the air.
Russell was thrown about the track before limping back to the pits for a new front wing. The safety car arrived, and the inquest began.
Referencing their ding-dong battle at the last round in Japan, Russell added: “Guys, come on,
Two races in a row.” Sitting in the sandtrap, Hamilton, 38, pointed the finger at his younger team-mate. “Yeah, I got taken out by my team-mate,” he said.
