Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says Lewis Hamilton wasn’t negatively affected by the controversy surrounding his British Grand Prix collision with Max Verstappen.

The fallout of the collision included harsh words aimed at Lewis from the bosses of Red Bull, and also heinous racist abuse from disgruntled fans of Verstappen and the Austrian team.

However, Toto Wolff says the controversy did not harm the seven-time champion.

“He’s very robust and resilient, because history made him like that,” Wolff said ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

“We spoke a lot, but it wasn’t part of our discussion, or it wasn’t a big part of our discussion.

“We know each other pretty well, and our communication is often and transparent. And at no time was there a negativity around anything that could have affected him or me.

“It was more about assessing the situation and discussing actually [our] Hungary performance.

“So it didn’t harm him or anything like that,” concluded the Austrian.
