Wolff "enjoyed" Hamilton/Bottas fight at start of Eifel GP
Hamilton was able to take over the lead of the race from pole-sitter Bottas for a short time after he had a better start from the grid and jumped inside at Turn 1 at the Nürburgring.
Hamilton ran a bit far at the corner and briefly forced Bottas off the track, but the Finn was able to jump forward again after crossing the curb when he got back on the track and reach the inside line for Turn 2.
Hamilton said after the race that he was impressed with Bottas' move during their early fight and praised his teammates for his "amazing" work.
"I remember coming out of that corner and thinking, 'Good to you man. I'm impressed, that was good,'" said Hamilton.

Mercedes F1 boss Wolff was asked for his thoughts by Motorsport.com when he saw his drivers run so close together in their battle, and repeated Hamilton's praise for Bottas.
"I enjoyed the race between the two because I never doubted that there would be contact," said Wolff.
"These guys respect each other. They know very well where the limits are within this team.
"Lewis was braking a little late and had full suspension and that obviously pushed Valtteri far, but Valtteri in his true style as a rally driver kept his foot down and deserved the position. I enjoyed that."
Bottas held the lead of the race until lap 13, when Hamilton made further progress due to a suspension and retired shortly after his first pit stop due to a suspected MGU-H problem.
Bottas called the fight with Hamilton "a lot of fun".
"I think Lewis had the first jump from the start, a little better so that he could get inside at Turn 1," explained Bottas.
"I knew the best thing for me would be to brake as late as possible and still try to stay on the track. I think he braked very late and then understeered a lot.
"I didn't just want to give up this position, so I decided on it from the outside. I'm glad I got the position back inside for the second round."
