Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff is hopeful "repercussions" from Max Verstappen's driving standards in Saudi Arabia will avoid a "messy situation" in F1's season finale.
Verstappen was ordered to hand back the lead to Lewis Hamilton in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix and was also awarded a five-second penalty for leaving the track and gaining an advantage after a robust defence into turn one on lap 37, a move that led to the Mercedes driver labelling the Dutchman as "f**king crazy".
