As Hamilton easily passed Rosberg, Wolff was pictured on television smiling at that exact moment.
“Whoever picks that up and tries to interpret anything in such a picture must be out of his mind,” Wolff said. “First of all, it’s not live. So whenever the camera’s pointing on you the signal comes later. So it wasn’t synchronized with the picture.
“I will hide in the engineering office next time. There was a smile I think when the two were getting closer to each other. It was a smile, ‘Here we go again in a close battle.’ That was the smile.”
Hamilton went on to win the race and close the gap to Rosberg to 22 points.
