And it is, even though Hamilton, Mercedes, showed the usual strength, again suffered in Interlagos as usual; while Verstappen gave a seat from the start to stand in front of two Ferrari, German Sebastian Vettel, who thinks next year and Finn Kimi Raikkonen.
Then the Dutchman from Red Bull presented Mercedes Finn Valtteri Bottas with a good maneuver in second place behind Lewis Hamilton.
In the 20th order, Verstappen came first, thanks to the "silver arrows" entering the holes. There, the Dutchman was happy until after 30 rounds he had to change tires to his Australian team colleague Daniel Ricciardo instead of his privilege and returned the third without having lost many seconds behind his teammate and Hamilton.
With soft and full tires, Verstappen did not have any trouble overcoming Hamilton in the 40th round, and since Ricciardo entered the pit, the Dutchman was the first with exceptional handling and remarkable Red Bull strategy.
But the excitement fell apart on Verstappen when four rounds later got the contact from French Esteban Ocon from Racing Point Force India to be handed over by Hamilton and no longer had the chance to win first place for the rest of the race.
The British premiere of his championship with the tenth victory of the current campaign and Verstappen ended an angry and insulting Ocon that ended up being approved.
Kimi Raikkonen finished on the podium by holding the attacks of Australian players Daniel Ricciardo and Bottas and Vettel climbed behind, while Top Ten was completed by Monegasque Charles Leclerc (Sauber), Frenchman Romain Grosjean and Danish Kevin Magnussen, Mexican Sergio Pérez from Racing Point Force India.
