Mercedes boss Toto Wolff defends Valtteri Bottas about crashing with George Russell at the 2021 Emilia Romagna F1 race.
According to Toto Wolff, Valtteri Bottas did not perform the dangerous or fraudulent maneuvers that George Russell had alleged.
As is known, the incident began when George Russell tried to pass Valtteri Bottas before the Tamburello corner of the Imola circuit.
Russell, who was speeding up on the right, looked out of space after Valtteri Bottas closed the space.
Russell’s car suddenly lost control and twisted and hit Bottas’ car very hard.
Both of them ended up in gravel with their car badly damaged, both angry and blaming each other.
After the crash, Russell immediately approached Bottas, who was still in the cockpit, and argued with each other.
At the peak, Bottas points his middle finger at Russell which Russell immediately responds with a light blow to Bottas’s helmet.
This was enough to make Toto Wolff furious because Russell himself was a Mercedes-built racer who was deliberately loaned to Williams.
Wolff himself did not completely blame both of them for the crash, but was quite disappointed with their gestures after the crash, especially Russell who had hit Bottas’s helmet and accused him of deliberately taking a dangerous action.
Although arguably a bit defending, Wolff admitted that he was quite disappointed with Bottas.
“I’m not sure who blames who is guilty of the incident,” said Wolff as quoted by GridOto.com from Planet F1.
“But for sure this race is not going well for him, he has a setback,” he said.
Wolff is disappointed with how Bottas, who drives the strongest car in F1, can compete with Williams who is at the bottom of the table.
According to Wolff, Bottas’ performance was very poor and made him in an unnecessary position and even crashed.
