Wolff: Hamilton had the same pace as Russell

After the positive GP of Spain, the race on the streets of Monte Carlo was difficult for the seven-time champion.
Lewis Hamilton finished the Monaco GP in eighth place while his teammate again had a place among the top five drivers. The more experienced Briton had to deal with Alpine drivers during the race, where he first had contact with Esteban Ocon, for which the Frenchman was punished and later got stuck behind Fernando Alonso.

“He could very easily have been close to Lando Norris or even George Russell, maybe even leading because he had the pace.” said Mercedes boss Toto Wolff. “You saw Lewis get stuck behind Fernando and he had contact with Esteban. These were all unwanted situations that stopped Lewis, but he had the right pace. “
