Mercedes chief Toto Wolff suggested Formula One fans may have short memories after Lewis Hamilton led home a one-two for the team at the Canadian Grand Prix.

The team saw their judgment questioned when Hamilton came into the pits from the lead in Monaco a fortnight ago - virtually handing victory to Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg.

Hamilton was untouchable in Montreal as he kept Rosberg behind to take the 37th win of his career and open up a 17-point lead in the championship.

"I must say that after Monaco it was very difficult for the team to handle," Wolff said.

"We were exposed to massive criticism, it looked like all the victories and the world championship was forgotten and suddenly a bunch of idiots were managing the team.

"The result is a very satisfying one considering what happened in Monaco and after the event as well."
