Toto Wolff has called for Mercedes to learn from the "stupid moment" it made with regard to Valtteri Bottas' fastest lap bid in the Portuguese Grand Prix.
With the top three of Lewis Hamilton, Red Bull's Max Verstappen and Bottas set over the closing stages - barring any unforeseen circumstances - Mercedes opted to call in the Finn after 63 laps of the 66-lap event to try and set the fastest lap.
That, however, opened the window for Red Bull to gamble and summon Verstappen a lap later.
Bottas duly set the fastest time on lap 65, only for Verstappen to beat his mark on the final lap and seemingly gain a crucial point in his title fight with Hamilton.
