Max Verstappen is once again up for the FIA Action of the Year award, this time around for his pass on Charles Leclerc at the British Grand Prix.

Having beaten the Ferrari driver to the victory in Austria, Leclerc was out for revenge at Silverstone.

The youngsters went wheel-to-wheel and elbows out with Leclerc pushing Verstappen wide.

The Red Bull driver didn’t let up and made his move at the next corner, taking the position off Leclerc.

Verstappen’s antics have earned him yet another nomination for the FIA Action of the Year award.

He is already a three-time winner.

He claimed the honour in 2014 for a pass on Antonio Giovinazzi in a Formula 3 race, in 2015 for overtaking Felipe Nasr around the outside of Blanchimont and again in 2016 when he passed Nico Rosberg through Turn Three during a wet Brazilian GP.
