Hamilton stands out in F1 with his honesty over errors, says Wolff

During the Italian Grand Prix, Hamilton made a rare mistake when his wheels connected with Oscar Piastri’s during their battle for position at the second chicane. Piastri’s front wing was damaged, and he had to pit for a replacement, while Hamilton received a five-second penalty for causing the collision. Initially unsure of how the incident occurred, Hamilton realized his mistake and quickly apologized to Piastri. Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff praised Hamilton’s sportsmanship in admitting his error, which he believes sets him apart from other F1 drivers who often complain to avoid penalties. Both Wolff and Hamilton accepted the penalty, acknowledging that it was justified for the mistake made. Piastri accepted Hamilton’s apology, stating that he believes it was a misjudgment on Hamilton’s part.
