Toto Wolff says he can be satisfied with Mercedes' definitive response to its Monaco Grand Prix blunder with a perfect 1-2 finish in the Canadian Grand Prix.

The team came under fire for robbing Lewis Hamilton of victory in the centrepiece event after making a mistake with its strategic plan and allowing Nico Rosberg to snatch the win from him.

Though new communication protocols have been introduced in an effort to avoid a similar event from occurring again, Wolff believes the front row and 1-2 finish in Montreal will help move it on from its faux pas, not least the attention surrounding it.
