Wolff unmoved by British GP fallout: A win is a win

The 2021 British GP will be remembered for the first lap incident between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. While the collision continues to draw attention, Toto Wolff believes the Briton's win is no different from others in the past.

Toto Wolff doesn't believe Lewis Hamilton's first lap incident with Max Verstappen on the opening lap of the British GP takes the shine off his victory.

The two championship rivals came together at Copse corner, with the Dutchman sent into the barriers at speeds close to 300km/h. Hamilton was handed a 10-second penalty but still battled back to take the chequered flag, with Wolff pointing out it's a win like any other.

“It was always very intense because we are fighting with everything we have in order to hold on to this championship whilst knowing that we are not performing as [well as] Red Bull and Honda," Wolff told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media. "Therefore we’ve had big points losses in the past, and today we scored big points. So that is always balancing itself out.

“A win is a win and a third is a third and we scored big points today and that’s it. We put it on the scorecard and move on to the next one."

Red Bull have been vocal with their displeasure over the incident with Christian Horner stating it was a 'hollow' victory, however Wolff brushed off those suggestions.

"Everybody has an opinion and that's okay," Wolff added. "Of course every team will have a certain bias towards incidents like that."

Wolff believes the incident has garnered so much attention because it took place at a high-speed corner.

"I think that if that would have been a low or mid-speed corner, then it wouldn’t have been a big debate or what the consequence of that was - a five or 10-second penalty,” stated Wolff. “But it was a high-speed impact.

"It is a corner that takes lots of guts to take flat and when two cars are trying to drive through it, they need to leave each other space in order to make it through the corner. That wasn't the case and the stewards deemed 10 seconds was appropriate. I guess because both drivers were part of the accident."
