Wolf: Calmer Verstappen will champion F1 – Formula 1


Wolf suggested that the clashes of Verstappen with Esteban Ocon on the track last weekend in Brazil and Grand Prix indicated that he still has some to do.

But Wolff, who tried to sign Verstappen into the young Mercedes program before committing to the Bull Bull, while in Formula 3 in 2014, said he remained a huge fan of the Dutchman.

"You can see that there is a champion coming together," Wolf said.

"Unbelievable talent and speed, and I think that once the rough edges are released, he'll be someone who will be a world champion one day.

"In a few years he will look at the film 's [Interlagos] And maybe he has his own opinion of whether or not it is true.

"But you can not speed things up, it's a learning process."

Wolf defended the actions of Mercedes Protig, who was sentenced to a collision with Verstapen while trying to disengage from the leader.

"He was on a new tire, much faster, and tried to untie himself, which is quite fair," Wolf said.

"So they crashed, and Max was in the lead, and that was a case I'm sure Stephen would want to avoid, instead of being there in the press with all the criticism."

He rejected the advice of Red Bull consulting consultant Helmut Marco that the connections of Oakle's Mercedes influenced the way he had gone to Wurstfen.

"That's how Dr. Marco sees the world, and I want to leave him with that," said Wolfe, "I do not want to continue on this level."
