Toto Wolff wants to see Lewis Hamilton back on the race track in the upcoming Formula 1 season.
After the controversial ending of the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP, Hamilton is yet to make a public statement. That has intensified rumors about Hamilton’s retirement lately. Wolff has shared his thoughts about Hamilton’s future.
“I really hope we’ll see him again,” the Mercedes team principal told Kronen Zeitung.
“He is the most important part of our sport. It would be an indictment for the whole of Formula 1 if the best driver decides to quit because of outrageous decisions.”
Wolff admits that it will not be easy for Hamilton to return until he has analyzed what happened in Abu Dhabi.
“No matter what hurdle he faced, he has known all his life that he has to speak on the racetrack.
“But it is incredibly difficult for him until he has found a way between understanding right and wrong. It just takes time.
“We draw our conclusions from this and want to give the right answers on the track. That will be difficult enough with the new regulations.”
