Lewis Hamilton And Mercedes Not Giving Up F1 Title Fight, Insists Toto Wolff

Posted by

Mercedes believes they still have a chance to win Lewis Hamilton’s eighth world title and has pledged to fight until the end. Despite Hamilton’s rival Max Verstappen taking a substantial lead after winning the Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday, team principal Toto Wolff believes the championship can still be won.

At the Autódromo Hermanos Rodrguez, Red Bull’s Verstappen dominated thoroughly, winning by 16 seconds and comfortably beating Hamilton into second place. With only four races remaining, the Dutchman has expanded his championship advantage to 19 points. After the race, Hamilton said that Mercedes couldn’t match Red Bull’s speed and insisted that they needed to find more speed if he wanted to close the gap.

Wolff remains convinced the title race is far from over. “I’m a pretty realistic person, but I love motor racing, because anything can happen,” he said. “None of us are ever going to leave this circuit with the mentality of this is going away from us. There’s four races to go, four wins to take, four DNFs to suffer. And we will just continue fighting.”
