It takes two to tango, says Wolff in defence of Hamilton


Mercedes crew boss Toto Wolff defended British Grand Prix winner Lewis Hamilton after a primary lap collision with Crimson Bull’s Method One chief Max Verstappen on Sunday.

The high-speed incident at Silverstone ended Verstappen’s race and slashed the Dutch motive force’s championship lead from 33 issues to 8 after 10 rounds.

Hamilton was once passed a 10-second penalty for inflicting a collision, with Crimson Bull boss Christian Horner angrily denouncing the seven-times international champion for an novice and ‘determined’ transfer.

“Everyone has an opinion, and that’s the reason OK,” Wolff advised journalists in reaction.

“In fact each and every crew can have a undeniable bias in opposition to incidents like that.

“This can be a scenario that I assume all of us have observed previously when nice drivers race with each and every different. When no person is ready to provide in, then all these scenarios can occur. However for me it takes two to tango.”

Wolff mentioned had the incident took place at a decrease velocity nook, the outcry would had been a long way much less.

“The stewards assume 10 seconds was once suitable, I assume as a result of each drivers have been a part of the coincidence, no longer one by myself,” he added.

“It is at all times a lot more nuanced.”
