Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Mercedes head Toto Wolff says he re­grets the ra­dio mes­sages that were sent to Lewis Hamil­ton dur­ing the Abu Dhabi GP. Hamil­ton re­peat­edly ig­nored or­ders to drive faster as he tried to back ti­tle ri­val Nico Ros­berg into the pack, prompt­ing a se­ries of ra­dio ex­changes. Wolff said: “In our mind that race is giv­ing us the same num­ber of points as oth­ers and we try to win it, not con­sid­er­ing that there was much more at stake for the driv­ers. We should have com­mu­ni­cated dif­fer­ently and, in hind­sight, let them race.”
