Toto Wolff has no problem with Lewis Hamilton doing the same overtaking manoeuvre again and accepts the possibility of another penalty.

At the Hungarian Grand Prix Thursday press conference Lewis Hamilton said he would again attempt the same overtaking manoeuvre he performed on Max Verstappen at the British Grand Prix, if he found himself in a similar situation.

Considering he received a 10-second penalty for the move, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff was asked if Lewis’ words are a cause for concern.

“I think he would probably get another 10-second penalty if that is the precedent that the stewards set,” the Austrian said matter-of-factly.

Wolff also says that he believes the controversy concerning the whole incident will not affect Lewis ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix.

“He is very robust and resilient because history made him like that. We spoke a lot but it wasn’t a big part of the discussion.

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

“It was more about assessing the situation and discussing the Hungary performance, so it didn’t harm him or anything like that,” concluded Mercedes’ team boss.
