Toto Wolff is back to show off the smile and determination of the best days – many, in the last 7 years … – after the peremptory success obtained by Lewis Hamilton at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix in Brazil which, in fact, reopens the games for the Drivers title and allows Mercedes to re-extend on Red Bull in the Constructors’ title.
After Lewis Hamilton’s decisive overtaking against Max Verstappen, Wolff was framed and cheered on the camera. At the end of the race, the Mercedes-AMG F1 boss revealed who she was headed to without beating around the bush.
“My exultation was a message for the Race Direction. I had a discussion before. I like the situation. We recovered 20 positions, we won against everything and everyone. The spirit of the team is strong, so much so that it leads us to win despite being there. so many things against us “.
Then Wolff went into even more detail, explaining that he did not like the lack of investigation into Verstappen. Max, in his first duel with Hamilton, forced him off the track at Turn 4 to try and defend himself. A defense that is at least questionable, because it in turn ended up off the track in order to block the opponent. And this maneuver, Wolff, did not like at all.

“If the regulation says you can’t push anyone off the track in Mexico, and that is also valid in Brazil, but then you get pushed off the track and nothing happens, it’s not consistent.”
“I had an argument with Michael Masi, but it wasn’t broadcast. Only my reaction was broadcast. We’ll talk about it among ourselves, behind closed doors.”
Wolff is a swollen river. He really has something for everyone, so much so that he can’t help himself when Red Bull enters the subject, or the opponents of Mercedes in this season so uncertain and exciting.
“It is the third consecutive time that Red Bull has made a change to the Parc Fermé regime on their cars. We would have liked to do one yesterday to replace a broken part and we have not had permission. For Red Bull it is the third time. But we won because we are strong “.
To conclude, he talked about the future, the latest races, and what he expects from Red Bull: “We expect Red Bull protests at all times. But that’s it. It’s the philosophy of F1. Protests are made. , its part of the game”.
