Hamilton will take part in the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday, the first of five remaining races, with a 50-point lead over Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel after Mercedes used team orders in Russian Federation.
"Obviously it was a bit boring for the race, but I think it made sense". Bottas pitted at the end of the 12th lap, with Vettel pitting on the 13th lap.
"Valtteri was willing to sacrifice his win in Sochi to help protect our one-two and extend our lead in both championships - and he said he'd be prepared to do the same again tomorrow", Wolff said.
"It's actually quite a hard day".
"The race panned out differently to what we had expected".
But Bottas, who was sat next to Hamilton in the same press conference, said he did not want to be gifted a victory. For sure, I am a racer - the only thing I want to do is win races but I also want to play for the team.
"I think in the position they are, it was a no-brainer what they did today, so maybe not all the questions are justified".

Cristiano Ronaldo is finding Serie A hard compared to La Liga - Cafu
In an Instagram video posted hours after the suit was filed, Ronaldo appeared to deny the allegations. The Juventus forward's representative said that he would take legal action against the magazine.
The 33-year-old Briton made a rare mistake in qualifying on Saturday to allow Bottas to take pole, and the Finn made no mistake in holding off his team-mate and Ferrari's Vettel on the opening-lap drag race to turn two.
The decisive intervention came on lap 23 of 53 in the race.
When asked about the team orders Hamilton, the reigning world champion, told the BBC it was the "most conflicted" he had ever been.
But Vettel said he had not given up on the title and pointed out that a failure to finish on Hamilton's side would swing the championship back the other way.
Vettel was encouraged unexpectedly by Ferrari's performance on Sunday when he followed Hamilton and Bottas. To be the baddie on Sunday evening, for many right reasons, or be the idiot in Abu Dhabi at the end of the season.
"Rationally, it was the right decision, but our sporting heart says no".
Vettel won his first title with Red Bull in 2010 after overhauling a 31-point deficit in the last six races, while in 2012 he took his third crown despite having been 44 points adrift of his then-closest rival Fernando Alonso at one point. Ferrari attempted an undercut by pitting Vettel earlier and that allowed him to momentarily gain a position as Hamilton re-joined the track behind him after his pit stop.
