Head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff commented on the success of Lewis Hamilton at the Grand Prix of Spain-2017.
Lewis Hamilton has won the battle with Sebastian Vettel at the Grand Prix of Spain
“This victory is the result of teamwork, said Toto in comments to Sky Sports. – I would not forget about Valtteri [Battese, descended in the second half of the race due to a malfunction of the motor]. His race ended after contact in the first turn. But he also took part in this race.
Ferrari was aware of the risk that after a wave of pit stops, Lewis could become a leader because he was able to keep up with Vettel. To avoid this they called Sebastian the boxes before we called Lewis. If they hadn’t called in for a pit stop your pilot during this period of time, we would have called Lewis. It is obvious that after the stops Hamilton was on a long stretch.
I am also pleased with the work of novelties. Moreover, I believe that the race updates will continue until the end of the season. The machine proved to be good in Barcelona, because we could pursue Sebastian. I’m happy with this performance. Let’s see what happens in the next race.”
