Mercedes and Toto Wolff still haven’t gotten over the Abu Dhabi controversy as they emerge with a fresh set of allegations against Red Bull and Max Verstappen. The saga seems to take a new turn almost every day. Toto Wolff doesn’t miss a single opportunity to remind Red Bull and Max Verstappen of the tremendous luck that they needed to defeat the seven time world champion Lewis Hamilton.

Michael Masi was in the middle of it all as he called the shots for the controversy that occurred in Abu Dhabi. The then race director didn’t go by the letter of the law and came up with a different interpretation to the law which looked like it was to cater to the business aspect of the sport and not upholding the spirit of the law.

It seemed like the controversy with the repositioning of Michael Masi but Toto Wolff doesn’t seem to let it go as he again brings it up in one of his interviews. In an interview for the new two part documentary: ‘Hamilton vs. Verstappen’, which is all set to air on Sunday night, the Mercedes boss took that opportunity to take further shots at Max Verstappen.

While Lewis Hamilton has tried his best to rest this issue and has clarified that he holds no grudges against the current world champion, Toto Wolff is in mood to let it go.

Toto Wolff said, “He’s [Wheatley] turned Michael Masi the race director, not only in Abu Dhabi but before, and probably Max owes him a lot.”

“Wolff also made his feelings very clear on Masi himself.

“I haven’t spoken to him and I don’t want to speak to him ever again.”

“The FIA should have seen much earlier that there was a problem. There was a problem with the structure. There was a problem of personalities.” as reported by planetf1.

Toto Wolff has taken this incident with a pinch of salt and might not be ready to let it go but if Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton want to bounce back, they should put it in the past and concentrate on things to come as new challenges stand in front of them already.
