Max Verstappen has aimed a dig at Toto Wolff in response to the Mercedes team principal’s passionate defence of the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix.
Mercedes team boss, Toto Wolff, passionately defended the organizers of the newest Formula 1 race after an incident during practice led to the cancellation of the session. A loose manhole cover caused significant damage to Carlos Sainz’s Ferrari and Esteban Ocon’s Alpine. While Wolff expressed sympathy for Sainz’s damaged car, Max Verstappen believes Wolff’s reaction would have been different if it had been one of his own cars. Verstappen emphasized the need to learn from past incidents when racing on street circuits and called for rule changes following Sainz’s grid penalty. This is not the first time that Verstappen and Wolff have had divergent opinions this season, as they clashed previously over remarks about Verstappen’s winning streak.
