Verstappen forced to take Marrakech trip as 'punishment'
Max Verstappen has been forced to attend the Marrakech E-Prix as part of his 'public service' punishment for pushing Esteban Ocon.
Verstappen fell foul of the authorities when becoming involved in a confrontation with the Frenchman after the 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix.
The Dutchman was incensed with Ocon after the Force India driver crashed into him and ended his hopes of winning in Sao Paulo.
The pair came together at the post-race weigh-in and Verstappen was seen to shove his rival three times.
He was handed a punishment after failing to apologise for the incident, stressing that he would do it again, and the FIA have now revealed what the youngster has been ordered to do.
"Max Verstappen will attend the Marrakesh E-Prix as a result of the stewards’ decision at the 2018 Brazilian Formula One Grand Prix," an FIA statement read.
"Verstappen will spend the day as an observer to the stewards, closely following their work at a top-level international motor sport event as part of the educational and informative approach taken by the FIA in this matter."
