- Mercedes on end of ‘laughable’ decisions, says team principal
- Wolff: ‘We’ve had many punches in the face this weekend’
Toto Wolff has described Lewis Hamilton’s victory at the Brazilian Grand Prix as one of the world champion’s best performances. But the Mercedes team principal also hit out, expressing anger at how he believed his team were harshly treated by some “laughable” decisions at Interlagos and that the gloves were now off as the Formula One world championship entered its final three, decisive races.
Hamilton won from 10th on the grid in Brazil with a superb drive over a weekend during which he endured two penalties and a race in which Mercedes felt he had been let down by the stewards when they opted not to punish his title rival Max Verstappen. The Dutchman appeared to run him off the track as the two drivers fought for the lead. Hamilton nonetheless went on to win and reduce his deficit to Verstappen in the championship to 14 points.
