Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes chief Toto Wolff will SNUB the FIA prize-giving gala in Paris, where Max Verstappen will pick up the trophy for his F1 championship win, as the defeated team principal admits they are both ‘disillusioned’

Mercedes chief Toto Wolff has revealed his anger at the controversial way Lewis Hamilton was denied the world championship at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. With the FIA race director Michael Masi allowing just the cars inbetween Hamilton and Verstappen to unlap themselves a lap prior, Mercedes protested that sporting regulations were not followed. But Wolff confirmed that the 36-year-old was still hurting from Sunday where he was magnanimous in defeat and sportingly congratulated Verstappen on his success. The controversial calls on Sunday that allowed Verstappen a clean track to attack Hamilton after he had pitted in for fresh tyres came from Michael Masi, and Wolff admits he has still not spoken to the FIA race director while still being left in a state of shock over the outcome of the race. That’s why I was in total disbelief on Sunday and am still until today.
