Wolff insists he does not hate Verstappen

Toto Wolff has hit back at the idea that he doesn’t like reigning back-to-back world champion Max Verstappen. “I asked why not and she thought I hated Max Verstappen,” the Mercedes team boss told De Telegraaf newspaper. “Max, in combination with his car, is the benchmark,” he said. However, Wolff does acknowledge that Verstappen is unlikely to ever be paired at Mercedes – or any team – with Lewis Hamilton. “Whether it’s Max, Lewis, Michael, Ayrton Senna, they’re all different,” said Wolff. “The Lewis I know, the Lewis I saw in the second half of the season in 2021, cannot be beaten,” Wolff insists.
