Steiner: 'I'm not in a position to comment'

Max Verstappen was in the lead for a long time during the race in Barcelona, but in the end it was Lewis Hamilton who took the top prize in Spain. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff stood out during the race with a call over the team radio.

Hamilton won the race thanks to an excellent strategy of Mercedes. In the second half of the race the Englishman was much quicker than his competitor and overtook Verstappen. With excitement in his body, Wolff made a request for a blue flag for Nikita Mazepin, who according to the team boss was hindering Hamilton. "I did not hear that message, but later it was reported to me that Toto had said something," Gunther Steiner reacted to Motorsport.com.

Steiner doesn't know why Wolff made the announcement. "I'm not in a position to comment because I don't know the circumstances, but I think Nikita behaved correctly. Maybe Toto wanted to make sure he showed who's boss here and that if one of his cars comes by everyone has to pull over. I think he wanted a bit of publicity."

Disappointing race Haas

Haas had another disappointing race in Barcelona. Mazepin again finished in last position, while Mick Schumacher drove just ahead of him. The team is therefore still without points in the world championship.
