Mercedes workforce principal Toto Wolff feels Lewis Hamilton has been dealt an unfortunate run of reliability in latest races however has admired his ‘calmness and maturity’ as he prepares to strike again at his house spherical at Silverstone.
Hamilton was successfully denied a race win through the Azerbaijan Grand Prix when he was compelled to pit from the lead with a damaged headrest, recovering to fifth place, whereas a five-place gird penalty brought on by a unscheduled gearbox change meant the British driver needed to combat again from eighth on the grid in Austria to fourth place.
Wolff feels he wants to provide ‘no extra rationalization’ for the mentality and goal set by Hamilton for the workforce, with the three-time F1 world champion searching a fourth consecutive victory at Silverstone, and is assured if he continues his ‘fairly excellent’ performances the wins will return.
“The dedication for Lewis to combat again with a powerful efficiency this weekend wants no extra rationalization,” Wolff mentioned. “Issues might have been loads worse on the final two races – however his efficiency and tempo deserved loads higher.
“He has dealt with the setbacks with the calmness and maturity we have now come to anticipate from him. Lewis is doing the job in a fairly excellent approach proper now and if he retains doing that, the outcomes will comply with.”
Wolff has duly reminded his Mercedes workforce of focusing on a flawless efficiency from a mechanical standpoint having missed alternatives through the previous two races.
“From the workforce’s perspective, we come to Silverstone with a sense of unfinished enterprise and needing to place issues proper, although we took the win in Austria,” he mentioned. “In each Baku and Spielberg, we left factors on the desk that have been there for the taking due to automotive issues that had nothing to do with our drivers. We’re decided to guarantee that would not occur in Silverstone.”
