Mercedes shocked the Formula 1 world with their 1-2 finish in the German Grand Prix, but Team Principal Toto Wolff remains adamant they didn’t have the quickest car.

Ferrari led the race for 52 laps until Sebastian Vettel crashed at Turn 12, forcing a safety car that awarded Mercedes first and second positions.

“The race happens on Sunday not Saturday, and sometimes it’s not the quickest car that wins; that was what happened today,” Wolff said post-race in Hockenheim.

Hamilton’s victory from P14 has allowed him to retake the lead of the Drivers Championship with just the Hungarian Grand Prix left before the F1 summer break.
