The first flashpoint in the Max Verstappen-Lando Norris rivalry took place at the Austrian Grand Prix as the two collided.

A slow pit-stop for Red Bull energised an otherwise dull race, setting up a late charge for Norris on Verstappen, with the two banging wheels on multiple occasions, as Verstappen stayed ahead.

On Lap 64, Norris tried to go around the outside of Turn 3 to set up a run to Turn 4, but Verstappen moved across, colliding with the McLaren.

Verstappen got a rear-right puncture as did Norris, with the Briton forced to retire.

The stewards immediately hit Verstappen with a 10 second time penalty, as he finished fifth after pitting for repairs. 

But who do you think was at fault? Verstappen or Norris?
