Wolff denies claims of Hamilton favouritism

Toto Wolff has denied the claims of his Red Bull counterpart Christian Horner about Valtteri Bottas’ status at Mercedes. Horner said at Monza that it is “obvious” that Mercedes favours Lewis Hamilton. When asked about Horner’s comments, Mercedes chief Wolff said he actually spoke to his colleague face to face on the topic. “He asked me: ‘Why didn’t you stop Valtteri twice at Spa?'” “So then I asked Christian: ‘Why didn’t you invite Max to do a second stop – after all, then you could have got ahead of us?’ “There is no favouritism at Mercedes in relation to any one driver to the detriment of the other,” Wolff insisted.
