Toto Wolff is worried about the possible outcome of the championship fight between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen.
The Saudi Arabian GP was full of incidents between the title protagonists. Hamilton and Verstappen even had a collision when the Dutchman was trying to give the position back to his opponent.
The tensions between the drivers have reached their peak and the Mercedes team principal Wolff hopes that both Hamilton and Verstappen will be more careful at the season finale in Abu Dhabi.
“I would hope that today’s [Sunday’s] race has enough repercussions that everybody’s going to learn from it and adapt for the final race in Abu Dhabi,” he said.
“I think that similar driving, if it were to be deemed by the stewards as over the line, would then probably also be penalized in Abu Dhabi, and that could well end in a messy situation for everybody.”
“I don’t think that the championship has deserved a result which was influenced by a collision, so I very much – in that case – trust into the self-regulating system.”
