Toto Wolff believes that the 2021 Formula 1 world title could be decided by an incident between the championship protagonists.

Details:

  • Wolff thinks that causing a collision might be the only way to keep the title hopes alive for one of the leaders.
  • At the same time, the Mercedes team principal is not going to ask Lewis Hamilton to make a dirty move to secure the championship.

What he had to say:

  • “If it was to come to the scenario of the last race in Abu Dhabi and they were to be racing each other for the title, whoever is in front is absolutely going to try to do the same as in the Senna-Prost years,” Wolff told the¬†Daily Mail.
  • “If you are racing for the championship and you see it fading away because the other guy is overtaking you, what tool have you got other than the one that makes sure he can’t overtake? We’ve seen it with [Michael] Schumacher and [Jacques] Villeneuve, we saw it with Senna and Prost twice.”
  • “I would never give the instruction to crash into anyone else,” Wolff added. “But if they go to that last race and whoever is in front wins the championship, they will be racing each other, hard.”
