Mercedes boss Toto Wolff admitted after the race that Ferrari was too strong this time around in Monza, but also believes that Charles Leclerc was a bit too tight when defending first place.
Wolff is pleased with the double staging of the winning stage, but still leaves Mercedes with a bit of a bitter taste at Mercedes.
Congratulations to Ferrari for having the strongest package this time around. We threw practically everything we had in them, but Leclerc withstood the pressure. In fact, at some point in the race he was free, but who would have dared to give Ferrari a five-second penalty here. This person would need a police escort.
