Wolff blasts ‘brainless’ F1 Fans

Toto Wolff has told “brainless” F1 fans who abused other spectators at the Austrian Grand Prix to “f* off”.

F1 chiefs and drivers condemned the harassment reported by a number of fans, which they claimed happened at the Red Bull Ring.

One individual claimed to have had her dress lifted up by “a group of five Dutch Max [Verstappen] fans”.

She added: “When I confronted them, they said that no Hamilton fan deserves any respect at all”.

The social media post triggered an outpouring of comments complaining of similar abuse, which included homophobic and racist slurs.

Wolff said: “If you are a real Formula One fan, whatever team, whatever driver, you can’t be a racist, you can’t be homophobic and you can’t be sexist because then you don’t fit to Formula One and we don’t want you.

“On the other side, we need to be careful just because there are a few drunk dumbarses out there that haven’t comprehended how the world goes today, we shouldn’t condemn the 99.9 percent of fans who come here.

“We need to be very careful that we don’t put the sport that we love into a corner and say this is all racist or sexist, because it’s not.

“There’s still too much, but we just need to target these guys and pick them out and say ‘you’.

“Whoever reads my sentence: stay away we don’t want you if you are part of that group. F* off. If you are part of that category, f*** off.”
