Wolff confirms Force India team order
Toto Wolff has admitted he asked for Esteban Ocon to let Lewis Hamilton past in Monaco.
Wolff is the team boss at Mercedes, and Ocon is a Mercedes junior driver.
The Frenchman currently drives for Mercedes-powered Force India, and after Monaco he seemed to hint that 'team orders' were in play when Hamilton sped past during the race.
"I'm a Mercedes driver," Ocon said. "You should ask the boss."
Wolff was asked by a reporter for La Derniere Heure if he gave the order for Ocon to let Hamilton through, and responded: "Yes."
Asked why, the Austrian added: "It is how it is."
