Hamilton crashed and broke his front wing and had to pit, with the Mercedes team not ready for their driver to come into the pit-lane, meaning the stop took over a minute overall.
Bottas could've properly caught up with Hamilton, who could only manage ninth-place, but instead the British driver gained a couple of points over his team-mate, extending his lead to 41 points.
"In his championship battle, he could have scored a decent amount of points to catch up to Lewis," Wolff claimed. "Whether it was 12, 15 or 18 points... I think it should have been 18 points.
"That would have been a jump and it didn't happen. But we are mid-term, lots more points to score. Obviously here he had a good chance to recover.
"I think when you race in Formula 1, you can feel the pain of days like these and beat yourself up a bit. But you need to recover. If you want to be a race winner and a championship winner, you need to come back strong even from these very lows. And Valtteri has shown in the past that he was able to do that."
