Toto Wolff Gives ‘Ten Out of Ten” Credit to Lewis Hamilton for a Remarkable P2 at Emilia Romagna Gp

Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes AMG F1 congratulates Lando Norris of McLaren F1 for his outstanding perfomance in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton went off-track midway, through the race at Imola, clipping the barriers. He struggled to get the car moving again but eventually did so and charged himself with making the best of his situation when the race stopped. After the restart, he moved up to the second four laps from the end, with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen taking the win.

After a thrilling race, Toto Wolff expressed his thoughts on the match and Lewis’s performance. He said, “Apart from that we had all highs and lows from the incident in the first corner which cost us two tenths in aero performance on Lewis’ car. Then we had Lewis hitting the barrier on lap 31. The recovery drive from Lewis after the race restarted was really brilliant, ten out of ten.”

Hamilton and Verstappen have now shared one win and one second-place each but the world champion leads the title race by one point by clocking the fastest lap in Imola.

Lewis Hamilton Shows why he is the World Champion

Lewis Hamilton has said he believes that reacting well to setbacks can define a Formula One driver. Instead, the British driver acknowledged his error, fought on, and drove a stunning comeback from ninth to finish second. He was asked to share what was going on in his mind when the crash occurred.

He said, “I remember sitting there looking at the barrier and I refused to think that the race was over. When you experience whatever form of adversity in terms of challenges and mishaps, barriers or hurdles you find it’s always more satisfying when you overcome them. It’s not mistakes that define us, it’s not how you fall but how you get back up.”

The hopes of winning an eight-title for Lewis Hamilton are still on track. With the Portuguese Grand Prix two weeks aways, the battle between Mercedes and Red Bull will surely intensify.
