“The fact that we are in the running for the conquest of both championships is the figure of our resilience, just look at where we were at the beginning of the summer”. Toto Wolff his chest swells in front of the possibility of continuing the string of world titles by Mercedes in the turbo-hybrid era of F1 which began in 2014. At the end of the Austrian Grand Prix, held on 4 July, Max Verstappen had 32 points of advantage over Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull even 44 on Mercedes. Now, with two races left to finish the championship, Brackley’s team has a five-point margin over Red Bull, while Verstappen has eight over Hamilton.
“Everything is still at stake and our mission is clear – added Wolff – we are back from Qatar where Hamilton was impeccable. The car performed well and reached the best form at the right moment of the season, now both drivers have the confidence to push. Now the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix awaits us in Jeddah, a completely new event for which the job behind the scenes in view of the free practice on Friday is mammoth. It will be essential to start the weekend in the best possible way with an already decent set-up base tested on the simulator in order to be able to collect a lot of fundamental data in the free practice sessions on Friday. The battleground allows no room for error and this will make everything even more exciting. We are on the hunt ”. The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will also be an opportunity to remember Sir Frank Williams, who passed away last Sunday: “We will do our best to deliver a performance that is worthy of his racing spirit – concluded Wolff – it will be in our thoughts “.
