The ‘threat’ of Wolff to Hamilton to renew with Mercedes

“The lawyers are working hard.” This has been the answer that Toto Wolff has given in the program ‘Sport am Sonntag’ of the Austrian television ‘ORF’ about the status of negotiations with Lewis Hamilton with just over a month left for teams to begin unveiling their new machines for the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship.

Wolf, who has been isolated for ten days in Tyrol, Austria after testing positive for COVID-19 in a PCR test carried out at the Kitzbühel ski resort, he denies that Brackley’s team has threatened Hamilton to put George Russell up in his W12, while specifying that the renewal must be achieved in the next few weeks before traveling to Bahrain.

The Mercedes W12 is scary

“We planned to stay a few days in Kitzbühel, but then I had a positive for COVID-19 out of nowhere, so we isolated ourselves for ten days there. Fortunately I had no symptoms because it could be very bad for you, we have already finished the isolation. We have to sign something sometime before traveling to Bahrain at the latest. There has never been any threat in our association, although I have to admit that the last time we met I threatened him that I was next on the list to take his seat. Sooner or later we will get the pen out, but it’s hard to sign something if we don’t see each other. I’m glad he’s training, I don’t have social profiles so I can’t see all that information. But I know he is in the United States, “says the head of the seven-time champions.

Notably, James Allison recently leaked that his department last improved the W11 at the end of August at the 2020 Belgian GP. Since then and until the checkered flag at Yas Marina, Hamilton and Bottas had nine poles, eight wins and five doubles in 11 races. A hegemony that could be repeated in 2021, as the first simulations carried out in the Northamptonshire county CFD and wind tunnel have yielded excellent results.
