Top 5 moments from the crazy 2018 Brazilian GP

The Brazilian Grand Prix turned out to be one nail-biting race. Red Bull's Max Verstappen made some solid passes on Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and the Mercedes drivers of Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton led the race for about 40 laps until Verstappen went in for the kill. Sadly his race lead was short-lived when Force India's Esteban Ocon made contact and left him literally reeling into a spin and handing the position back to the new five-time world champion Hamilton to drive to victory in the end.

Hamilton's win also boosted his team to win the Constructors title, the fifth consecutive win for Mercedes.

We look at the top 5 moments from the 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix:

1. Max on the prowl

Max Verstappen was in top form from the moment the lights went green. On Lap 4 he slipped past Vettel and grabs P3 before hauling in Mercedes' Bottas.

2. Bad day for Sauber

Marcus Ericson is told to box and retire on lap 21. This after his best race start for the team in P6.

3.  Ocon unleashes 'Mad' Max

Max had driven so well, overtaking the race leaders, only to be handed a terrible unjustice by Esteban Ocon on Lap 44.

4. This is why we call it 'Hammertime' 

Lewis Hamilton was on the team radio several times complaining about his tyres and also the car. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff reported after the race that the champion's engine was about to give in at any moment until they found a solution to carry him through. Hamilton pushed hard until the end of the race.

5. 'Mad' Max goes loco after the race 

Max can't control his temper in the paddocks after the race and shoves Esteban Ocon around in confrontation. The FIA sentenced him to two days public service for his bad sportsmanship.

Special mention

Mercedes went on to win their fifth constructors title. The team was so happy, they literally broke barriers in celebration.
