Following qualifying confusion, Mercedes team boss Toro Wolff expressed his dissatisfaction with the qualification drawdown, which he said cast a bad light on Formula One.
Charles Leclerc was the lucky winner of the lottery at the end of the qualifiers, when no one was able to start the last fast lap in time to tact and search for a whirlwind.
The Mercedes Toro Wolff team chief was pleased with the performance of his racers, but on the other hand stressed that Formula One should not be afforded this kind of confusion.
I've never seen anything like it in my career. We looked like complete idiots. Suddenly everything stopped and no one wanted to get into a fast lap. Things like this don't fit into Formula 1. Second and third place is a good result, but this complication is a black stain for the whole sport.
