Max Verstappen answers Toto Wolff‘s ‘Wikipedia’ statement, and says Wolff “sounds like he’s an employee of our team sometimes”, but “luckily” he’s not.
At the Italian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen surpassed Sebastian Vettel’s consecutive wins record, with ten wins in a row.
When asked to comment on this fact, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said such records would not be important to him, and added it was “for Wikipedia, and nobody reads that anyway”.
Ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix, Verstappen was asked to comment of Wolff’s words.
“I’m not disappointed in that,” the Dutch driver said.
“But I mean they had a pretty shit race so probably he was still pissed off with their performance.
“He almost sounds like he’s an employee of our team sometimes, you know? But no, luckily [he’s] not.

“I think it’s just important that you focus on your own team. That’s what we do as well.
“That’s what we did in the past as well when we were behind them and when they were dominating and I think you should be able to appreciate when a team is doing really well, which I think we’ve done in the past because it worked also as a kind of inspiration.
“To see someone that dominant was very impressive at the time and we knew that we just had to work harder, try to be better and try to get to that level.
“And now that we are there, we are very happy of course that we are there and we are enjoying the moment.
“And honestly that’s all I can say about it,” Verstappen concluded.
