Wolff: Verstappen F1 wins record “is for Wikipedia”

Max Verstappen’s victory at the Italian GP broke the record for most consecutive F1 wins, with Red Bull also setting a new record for most team wins in a row with 15. Verstappen, however, wasn’t focused on the feat. Mercedes boss Toto Wolff downplayed the value of the record, mentioning the internal rivalry between their two drivers as a factor. He also stated that Verstappen’s indifference to the achievement showed that the records were not important. Reflecting on Mercedes’ performance at the Italian GP, Wolff felt that fifth and sixth place were the best they could achieve, considering the pace of Red Bull and Ferrari. He acknowledged that the penalties justified their positions and that they would analyze how to prevent similar incidents in the future. Wolff also pointed out a weakness in Mercedes’ car in terms of aero efficiency, which affected their performance in Monza, Belgium, and Azerbaijan. However, he expressed confidence in their progress and believed that the upcoming Singapore race would suit their car better.
