Assessing the incident, Wolff said: “The halo definitely saved Lewis’ life today..
"It would have been a horrible accident that I don’t want to even think about if we didn’t have the halo.”
After flashpoints in Imola and notably the 51g crash of Verstappen at Silverstone after contact between the two drivers, Wolff feels the two must find a way forward.
“It’s fierce and it’s intense and they need to find a way of how to race each other," he explained. “There will be accidents if it is not clear and it is never clear cut actually.
"The Silverstone one it was [judged to be] predominantly. But they know what they are doing in the car and how they are racing each other and we should be watching with interest and hopefully not having eight accidents in the next eight races.
“That means we would lose [the title] by five points or so.”

At least Lewis had his helmet on those plugs are expensive to replace and without a doubt that tire wear would have definitely worn down many
