F1 LIVE: Helmut Marko snubs Verstappen and Perez as Wolff sends dejected Hamilton message


Toto Wolff has told his drivers not to let “negative sentients” get in their way after the Canadian Grand Prix, which was a mixed bag for Mercedes.

Russell snatched the final podium spot from Hamilton and the experienced Brit was left frustrated by his own display after.

But Wolff doesn’t want his drivers feeling sorry for themselves, saying: “I think when you finish third and fourth, from where we have been coming from, then it is a positive race.

“Third and fourth is so much better than we had previously in the last few races, so that is good, but I think both drivers saw that there was more up for grabs.

“We could have gained a position or two, and that is why there is a kind of negative sentiment, but if you would have given them third and fourth before the weekend, they probably would have taken it.

“I mean in FP3, Lewis put up a lap that was out of this world, and then his long run was stratospheric, galactical.”
