Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says the team’s decisions at the Dutch Grand Prix were “sub-par from everyone and that includes me”, and promises a thorough review.

Although Lewis Hamilton started the Dutch Grand Prix from P13, and finished in P6, Mercedes’ slow calls for tyre compound changes in changing weather conditions, prevented the team from being able to fight for top spots.

Team boss Toto Wolff admits the team made ‘catastrophic’ mistakes.

“I think we stayed out catastrophically too long,” the Austrian said.

“We got it completely wrong and it is annoying because the car had real pace. From there on, it was just recovering as good as we could.

“I would rather have a fast race car and a mediocre result even though it hurts. It is bittersweet because the result is just really bad.

“It could have been – but that doesn’t count in this sport.”

When asked if he will review the mistakes personally, Wolff said:

“We will review thoroughly. The situation is never one person in one department.

“It is the communication between driver, pit wall, strategy, weather, all of us taking decisions. It was sub-par from everyone and that includes me.

“It’s good when it hurts. When it stings, it sticks,” he concluded.
