Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff believes Max Verstappen is a potential World Champion once the "raw edges are off". Toto Wolff, who tried to sign Verstappen to Mercedes junior programme before he went to Red Bull while in Formula 3 in 2014, said he remains a big fan of Verstappen.

"You can see that there is a future champion coming together," said Wolff. "Unbelievable talent and speed. And I think once the raw edges are off, he will be somebody who will be a world champion one day. "In a few years he will look at the footage of Interlagos and maybe have his own opinion about whether that was the right behaviour or not. "But you can't accelerate these things, this is a learning process."

Red Bull's, Dr Helmut Marko, suggested Ocon's Mercedes ties had influenced how he drove around Verstappen. This is how Dr Marko sees the world, and I want to leave it with that," said Wolff. "I don't want to go on this level."
