VIDEO: The Verstappen overtake on Leclerc crowned moment of 2019
Max Verstappen was awarded the FIA's Action of the Year prize at Friday's prize-winning gala for his overtake on Charles Leclerc at the British Grand Prix.
Verstappen and Leclerc came wheel-to-wheel numerous times in an epic Silverstone event.
The battle came just two weeks after Verstappen had hunted down Leclerc to win in Austria, overtaking the Ferrari in the final stages at Spielberg with a hostile overtaking move which would set a precedent for a 'let them race' approach to stewarding over the remainder of the season.
It would allow Verstappen to pull off a stunning move on Leclerc around Club Corner, briefly leaving the track to make his move stick, although stewards fortunately let the magnificent display of car control and skill remain legal.
The Dutchman has won the award three times previously, for an overtake on Antonio Giovinazzi in European F3 and better-known moves on Felipe Nasr at Spa-Fancorchamps and Nico Rosberg in his epic 2016 Brazilian GP drive.
