Toto Wolff insists he WOULDN’T tell Lewis Hamilton to move aside for George Russell if Mercedes manage to get back into the F1 title race this season… and suggests the former world champion will ‘never get over’ last season’s controversial finish in Abu Dhabi

Before a question is even asked about the growing points difference between the two Mercedes drivers, Toto Wolff already knows what is coming. The team principal has already started shaking his head, ‘No,’ he says. With what Wolff described as the ‘fastest car in the race’, the Austrian publicly declared his team were back in the title fight, having ruled them out a month ago. The Mercedes team president claimed: ‘Absolutely I meant it. The Mercedes boss admitted: ‘We might take one on the nose here. The Mercedes team principal gives an interesting response here, revealing for the first time that he is actively looking for someone to replace him as team principal. ‘I’m running at 100 per cent [motivation-wise],’ insists Wolff, who owns one third of Mercedes F1 and is contracted to stay on as team principal and chief executive until at least the end of next year.
