Lewis Hamilton and Toto Wolff: Best Friends: / Formula 1


Although Lewis Hamilton is currently going through a difficult season, he has not given up. The Mercedes star talks about his situation and good relationship with motorsport director Toto Wolff.

Lewis Hamilton’s 16th year in Formula 1 threatens to become his first season without a win, but the seven-time champion from the Mercedes team is far from considering retirement. “In terms of my physical condition, I feel better than ever because I’m focusing on my fitness as I get older,” he told Formula1.com.

“I love racing and that’s why I’m working on a plan for the future. I can’t say yet what it will be, but there is no limit to what we can do,” added the 103-time GP winner. “I want to be creative and continue to do all the other things I can do. I can be in this team – and the support from Mercedes has been amazing since day one.

“It’s not just about winning for us. We can be part of those who are trying to change the world for the better – and that’s all we can try to do together, because it’s a big brand that can have a big impact on the world,” Hamilton said.

That is why he wants to remain loyal to his Mercedes team, despite the difficult phase in which the factory team of the star brand finds itself. Hamilton is talking about a multi-year deal. And he also makes it clear that he has a good relationship with Toto Wolff. He says of the Silver Arrows motoring director: “He’s one of my best friends.”

“We’ve had difficult times and difficult conversations over the years. Sometimes emotions run high, but we’re like a family. I wish him well and he wishes me well. We can talk about anything at any time. We share the same values ​​and pursue the same goals in terms of the brand, team and success,” explains the fifth World Cup.
