Wolff: 'Lewis' unbelievable driving just saved all of us today'

Mercedes' Team Principal Toto Wolff praised Lewis Hamilton for reviving their race today, as the Brit finished in second place. His teammate Valtteri Bottas was involved in a collision with George Russell which retired the car. 

Remarkable comeback

"When we thought the race was completely lost, Lewis' unbelievable driving just saved all of us today," he exclaimed whilst talking to Sky Sports.

Unsure on collision

However, the talking point, alongside Hamilton, will be the collision between Bottas and Russell. Wolff is unsure of what has happened but will look into it.

"It was a bad shunt. There wasn't a lot of friendly exchanges between the two of them, but we need to look at it again because it takes two to tango. Maybe it's not a 50-50, maybe it's a 50-40, but I wouldn't know in which direction.

"I haven't seen George yet. I keep teasing him saying if he does a good job he can be in a Mercedes, if not we'll be in the Renault Clio cup. Today we are more close to the Renault Clio cup."
