Hamilton era can 'annihilate' F1

Toto Wolff says that Mercedes mechanics have saved the team

Toto Wolff says that Mercedes mechanics have saved the team

But that worry, he said, was wiped away on Friday once he had learned that Ferrari's new evidence in their bid to overturn the result of the Canadian Grand Prix depended mainly on an analysis video made for Sky Sports.

"I think with the world we're in today, you can't win and you lose any way you do it", said Hamilton.

Daniel Ricciardo declaring "I don't really care" after losing F1 points just about sums up the need for rule changes in the sport.

"I think it was fun and it's better to have a fight and see what happens than to just sit behind and be a loser, so yeah, I enjoyed it".

'Valtteri has shown great pace on the single lap (qualifying), I think he's ramped up his game tremendously from last season to this season, ' said Wolff of a driver with three poles to his credit this year.

The five-time world champion has recently taken an active role in helping F1 shape its future, attending a 2021 rules summit in Paris earlier this month, where all 10 teams were present along with F1 chiefs and the FIA, racing's governing body.

Hamilton said: "If it was me, I would want my team concentrating on the race".

"The first stint went pretty well and that meant I could close the gap to Charles and Max [Verstappen]. They've been making all these decisions and never once had a driver's input in that room, so if that can be the decisive point that helps shift it and the fans can get better racing, I will be proud to be a part of that". "Really not good. They won't like me saying that".

Reflecting the fact that there is never a single reason why a specific event lacks action, Wolff also said that it could help the racing in France if the chicane that interrupts the long Mistral straight was removed, a suggestion that was made earlier in the weekend by Bottas - as well as past year by the late FIA F1 director Charlie Whiting.

"They've got to make some serious changes to the decision they have already made for how 2021 should be".

"You can't make a rule change about something without having all the facts behind it and what effect it will have and so. And he's very aware of that where he needs to improve", added the Austrian.

"Anyway, so we just go in there to try and be a guide and if we can be a part of the rudder when they come up with an idea we can say actually that would feel bad in the vehicle and they would be like 'oh really'".

"They've extended the decision of making the rules", he said of the rules package, which has been delayed until October. But even so, they'll watch it and choose a team that they prefer, that's just how we are you know.

He suggested there are not the same complaints at seeing tennis star Rafael Nadal dominate at Roland Garros and said that Mercedes rivals should work harder to overhaul them. "Me, and my team, were focused on trying to improve the vehicle". "But I empathise with fans watching and thinking "ugh" about a race like Sunday".
