Toto Wolff is still fuming at the FIA after Max Verstappen pipped Lewis Hamilton to the Drivers World Championship over the weekend.

Hamilton appeared to be cruising to his eighth title, but a crash involving Nicholas Latifi at the back of the pack caused a safety car.

This meant Hamilton, who had been almost 12 seconds ahead, was now neck-and-neck with Verstappen, who had the fresher tires.

Verstappen was able to claim his first F1 title as Mercedes complained to the FIA, only to later back down.

But Wolff still fumed: "It was a freestyle reading of the rules, and it left Lewis like a sitting duck."

Wolff also suggested that Hamilton may not return to F1 next season: "I would very much hope Lewis continues racing because he is the greatest driver of all time.

"As a racer, his heart will say I need to continue because he's at the peak of his game.

"But we have to overcome the pain that was caused upon him on Sunday.

"He is a man with clear values."
