The consequences of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, which was raced this Sunday on the Baku street circuit. Although the race had been very even and entertaining, the accident of Max verstappen left the victory on a tray to Lewis hamilton and the team Mercedes. However, the mistake of the last champion made the team leaders explode in anger: “It is unacceptable”.
Toto wolffMercedes team boss went viral on social media with his reaction to the action that left Lewis Hamilton with no chance of winning this Sunday. The Austrian went from ecstasy to disappointment when he saw his star go off the line. However, before the media, Wolff was a bit tougher for not scoring points in the race.
“On Monaco and here we did not have a car that was competitive, period. In Baku, we had a car that almost every session was nowhere, “said the boss of the Mercedes team to the Marca newspaper. Not only did Hamilton stay out of the points, but Valtteri Bottas it was never in the top ten. This had not happened since Austria 2018, when both Mercedes cars abandoned due to mechanical problems.
Despite Hamilton fighting for victory, Wolff said more is expected from the team’s cars for a weekend. “It is very good to come back and fight for third place, but to be honest it is simply unacceptable that we are not putting the car in a performance window at the start or after the pit stops, we are losing seconds to put the car where it works. It just takes too long, ”he added.
Finally, Wolff assured that he hopes the team will lift morale for the next Grands Prix, which will be essential at the end of the year. «These are the most difficult days. I am very angry, it is very painful and frustration overwhelms me, but no one has any doubts. This is such a strong team that we are going to transform anger into a positive force. We are warriors and we will return.
