Head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff commented on the fourth the title of Lewis Hamilton and the contact on the first lap of the Grand Prix of Mexico with Sebastian Vettel, which led to a puncture of the rear tire on the car of the British.
“I hated every minute of this race, – said the wolf in a commentary for Sky Sports. – It was awful and lasted too long.
Yes, we had a large stock of points, and people said that it’s over, but it’s not. In motorsports the fate of the race may resolve one incident: Lewis could go with Sebastian to win.
If to speak about the incident [in the third turn], in normal conditions, Vettel would get a penalty, but it was the race that decided the championship.
From this moment begins the new season. We need to improve in many areas, working on their weaknesses. Now we all work for 2018″.
Non-Executive Director of Mercedes Niki Lauda said: “a Little bit unusual to get the champion title, finishing in ninth place. But this is no big deal, because he has achieved the main goal.
However, I do not understand the reasons for aggressive maneuver of Vettel in the first turn. He struck Lewis, but the fault of our pilot it was not. In the end, all of us turned out alright. Fantastic!
This year Lewis has made much progress. If you want to be a multiple world champion, he should always progress from year to year. He made an incredible step forward: our car was not as fast as last year, it is not so easy to fly, but he did it”.
