The head of “Mercedes” Toto Wolff commented on the departure of Valtteri Bottas from the race at the Monaco Grand Prix. Finn drove into the pits, but his mechanics were unable to replace the right front tire due to wheel nut problems.
– Valtteri stopped a little earlier from the place of the line. This meant that the mechanic had to use the unscrewing wrench at the wrong angle, which damaged the wheel nut. That is why we were not able to change the wheel, – quotes the words of Wolff AutoMotor Und Sport.
Recall that the winner of the Monaco Grand Prix was Red Bull pilot Max Verstappen.
