On the war of words, Wolff said: "It is great. We have a fight between outstanding drivers, the championship has swung both directions and things are being said which are good for entertainment.
"I would attribute that sentence to the entertainment factor and great to talk about it and write about it. This is action on the track and also off the track."
Hamilton overcut only way to beat Gasly
Hamilton's misery was compounded by a failed attempt to undercut the AlphaTauri of Pierre Gasly in the pit stop phase, allowing the long-running Sebastian Vettel and Sergio Perez to leapfrog the Briton on his way to a lowly seventh.
The result means Hamilton is now four points adrift of Verstappen ahead of the next race in Azerbaijan in early June.
Assessing the options on the table at the time for Mercedes, Wolff said: "The undercut was the only chance we had. We saw the tyre that came off and there was nothing left, similar to Valtteri's car.
"There was some communication with the strategists, are we undercutting? We felt the undercut had much bigger potential to jump Gasly and it wasn't enough."
