‘We’re big boys’: Wolff bears no grudge after Hamilton’s shock switch to Ferrari

Hamilton’s unexpected decision to leave Mercedes, with whom he has driven since 2013, and join the Scuderia was announced on Thursday. Wolff said he was informed by Hamilton only on Wednesday morning and that the move came as a surprise. Wolff joined Mercedes the same year as Hamilton and the pair have formed a very close friendship, during what has been one of the most successful runs in Formula One history. The 39-year-old had not discussed a move with his team principal and when he was told Wolff said that he did not attempt to talk Hamilton out of it. He said Hamilton had told him face to face and that it was the timing that was unexpected.
