Verstappen, 21, attempted to improve his grid position but was passed by Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Renault’s Nico Hulkenberg and Daniel Ricciardo, his former team-mate.
Race engineer Gianpiero Lambiase urged the Dutchman to speed up which led Verstappen to shout: “They are such w***ers, honestly.”
Verstappen’s anger appeared to be directed at Vettel, Ricciardo and Hulkenburg as he added: “You’re trying to be nice but everybody’s just f***ed it up.”
The youngster’s fury continued after the race as Verstappen vowed to get revenge over the trio.
He reportedly told Dutch TV: “We were just staying neatly behind each other, but at a certain point Vettel passed me and the two Renaults as well.
“So they f***** up my entire build up. There is an unwritten rule that you just follow each other. From now on in qualifying, I’m going to f*** them up as well.”
Verstappen is not known for being pals with his fellow drivers.
The unpredictable Dutchman was filmed pushing Force India’s Esteban Ocon in November during the Brazilian GP.
