Red Bull motorsport advisor Dr Helmut Marko has claimed that Esteban Ocon’s clash with Max Verstappen during the Brazilian Grand Prix was linked to the fact the Frenchman has been promised a Mercedes race contract for 2020.

Marko also believes that the Frenchman’s ten second stop and go penalty was not enough and that he should have received a race ban.

The resulting clash saw world champion Lewis Hamilton win helping Mercedes to their fifth consecutive Constructors championship.
