Mercedes boss Toto Wolff defends Lewis Hamilton for his foul-mouthed outburst after the Dutch Grand Prix… and says team will continue to ‘take risks’ in order to win races

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has defended both Lewis Hamilton and his strategists whose gamble backfired on them at the Dutch Grand Prix. Hamilton let rip at his team over the radio as his faint hopes of victory were ruined by being left out on older tyres than Max Verstappen. But Wolff looked too smooth over the situation, saying: ‘You get emotional in the race. ‘This is how it has always been between a frustrated driver and the pit wall.’ Asked if he was considering making changes to the strategy team Wolff delivered an emphatic ‘no’. AlphaTauri, meanwhile, have rebutted suggestions they staged Yuki Tsunoda’s bizarre retirement to help Verstappen because he drives for their senior team, Red Bull.
