Immediately after the end of the race in Imola, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff apologized to his driver over the radio, as his car was difficult to drive this time. Asked by reporters whether the earlier service might have had an impact on getting involved in the fight at the head of the caravan, the Briton replied:
“I don’t know, they wouldn’t be too different if I stopped earlier. This is definitely a weekend to forget. ”
On this occasion, Lewis Hamilton also looked back on his chances for the title.
“I am no longer in the competition for the championship, that is no longer an issue. I will continue to work hard to try to get us all back on track. ” he stated.
