       Lewis Hamilton says he's proud to be a part of the Mercedes team after the Silver Arrows claimed their fif

"He was robbed of victory and then Ocon so stupidly stood there and grinned".

One more constructors' championship will match Ferrari's six, the Scuderia having also taken the team title in 2009.

Mercedes secured a fifth consecutive drivers' and constructors' championship double this season, with the latter title being secured in Brazil on Sunday.

Wolff replied: "In a few years' time he may look back at these images and wonder whether this was the right behaviour, but you can not rush this, because this is a learning process".

At a news conference later, Verstappen said he insulted Ocon to his face and said it was fair that the Frenchman received a stop-go penalty after the incident.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff was impressed with the restraint shown by Ocon during the confrontation and tipped him for major success in the future.

"I really want you to remember that moment and hold on to it because that's what's going to power us to many more championships".

"With age and experience I'm able to do that now; there's not really anything that you can throw at me that I can't handle".


"Clearly Ocon should not have got himself in a tangle situation with the race leader", he told motorsport.com.

Who won the 2018 Formula 1 world championship?

"But Max diced with him, instead of going, 'What is this guy playing at?"

"We didn't win every single race, there were some mishaps, particularly at the beginning of the year, so there's always room to improve, I expect to do that and that's my expectation of myself". It won't make a difference anyway, because he will continue to take risks and drive the way he drives, but he will learn.

"And the job is going to get more hard every year".

On a scale of fisticuffs, Sunday's incident ranked among the milder ones.

Despite appearing to struggle all weekend, Red Bull proved to be a force to be reckoned with on race day, and Verstappen looked set for his first back to back victories. Victory in Brazil ensured they have equalled Ferrari's record, achieved with Michael Schumacher between 2000 and 2004.
