Hamilton, the alarming departure of the Mercedes boss

Should Mercedes improve its performance over time, Toto Wolf knows it won’t be enough for Lewis Hamilton to take the lead this season.

After a decade of brutal dominance in Formula 1, Mercedes has suddenly entered the ranks this season. However, with the new technical regulations coming into force at the beginning of the year, the German company has not yet found the keys to compete with the best single cars, such as Ferrari and Red Bulls.

If George Russell manages to save the furniture during this difficult period for Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton is in big trouble. Only in 13th place in the last Grand Prix, the seven-time world champion ranks only 7th overall with only 28 points, far behind leader Charles Leckler and his 86 points.

“Unfortunately we are too far away”

And Lewis Hamilton’s troubles are definitely not over yet … Although the Silver Arrows should improve performance during the season, the British will not be able to catch up, Toto Wolf warned.

You can’t win ten years in a row if you don’t match sometimes. Now we are trying to get together, which gives us the opportunity to restructure the team. In 2023, we will use the same cars, which means that next year we will need everything we learn now. The sooner we get through it, the better »said the Mercedes boss, commenting on the Nextgen-car, and concluding about the chance to see the Silver Arrows fighting for victory in the next Grand Prix this weekend in Miami: No, unfortunately we are too far away! » Not too convincing …
