Toto Wolff has condemned the booing aimed at Lewis Hamilton after qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix, though admits he can understand why emotions are still running high.

Some of the crowd at the Hungaroring jeered Hamilton following the session, which saw him secure pole position ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas with the Red Bull of Max Verstappen in third. Whilst Hamilton claimed he was actually motivated by the reaction, Wolff does not like the boos.

However, the Mercedes team principal recognises that there is still a lot tension following the controversial incident between Hamilton and Verstappen at the British Grand Prix.

"I think that booing has no place in the sport," Wolff told RacingNews365.com and other select media. "But you need to also recognise that the emotions have been very high in the last two weeks, and the grandstands are packed with Dutch fans.

"Nobody likes it [booing], and people that have done sports competitively will never understand why there is [booing]. But you hear that in football stadiums and you hear that on the grandstands, and it was an orange grandstand."

Wolff added on the boos: "I think it is a consequence of the events of the last few weeks. The incident was controversial, it was polarising, and we see the consequences.

"That is the consequences in terms of the emotional expressions of the grandstands."

Whilst Wolff welcomes passion from the fans, he believes that booing is going too far.

"I would say the booing is a somehow archaic instinct that shouldn't be part of the sport, but it also shows how passionate the fans are," the team boss said.

"Tribal instinct isn't necessarily something bad. I very much have that instinct for the team too. So if it were tribal, if they were passionate, if they were applauding and screaming for the drivers, that would be great.

"I think the booing has no place in sports."
