The British driver was greeted with a barrage of booing and jeering from a grandstand of Verstappen fans during his parc fermé interview after claims of "gamesmanship" on his slow final out lap of the session.
"I think that booing has no place in the sport but you have also got to recognise emotions have been very high in the last few weeks and the grandstands are packed with Dutch fans," said Wolff.
"Nobody likes that and people that have done sports competitively will never understand why that is.
"You hear that in football stadiums and you hear that in the grandstands. It was an orange grandstand.
"I would say the booing is an archaic instinct that shouldn't be a part of the sport but it also shows how passionate the fans are.
"Tribal instinct isn't necessarily something bad, I very much have that instinct for the team too.
"If it were tribal, if they were passionate, if they were applauding and screaming for the drivers, that would be great. I think the booing has no place in sports."
