Unhappy Wolff acknowledges 'Verstappen is a worthy world champion'

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix was over a month ago, but Mercedes and Toto Wolff can't seem to forget it. Despite everything, Toto Wolff has taken a moment to show his respect for Max Verstappen.

The discussions and conversations about the drama at the Abu Dhabi GP continue. Immediately after the race, it seemed that Mercedes would even appeal the result, but they decided against that soon after the race ended. 

'Will never forget this'

On the other hand, the German team haven't been able to let go. According to Wolff, they are never going to forget this. Lewis Hamilton deserved the victory according to him, but the race control then made decisions that enabled Verstappen to become world champion.

"It's hard to understand. It will always stay with us, even if Max Verstappen is a worthy world champion during the course of the season. But on that day, one was better than the other - and he didn't win," the Mercedes team boss told Kronen Zeitung.
