Hamilton unsure how to behave at Mercedes given his move to Ferrari

Lewis Hamilton believes that at some point he will have to talk to Toto Wolff about the details of his move to Ferrari.

The seven-time Formula 1 champion’s move to the competition’s most successful team was announced on February 1, leaving the Briton with a full season of competition with a team he will not continue working with. This brings with it a certain number of problems regarding the sharing of information about the development of the future iteration of the car. However, such an early announcement works in the hands of Mercedes because it allows them to start managing the situation as soon as possible. For Hamilton, however, this will not be a completely new situation, but, for the record, his move from McLaren to Mercedes was announced much later in the 2012 season, only on September 28. That’s why Hamilton is thinking about the moment when he will have to fix relations with Mercedes and start talking to Ferrari.

“I think [it] will start with talking to Toto, because I don’t know how to navigate. I’ve never been in this position before at this time of year.”

“When I left McLaren, it was towards the end of the season. I didn’t go to Mercedes until I think December, after the season was over, when I did the seat for the first time. I’m not really sure how I’m going to manage.”

Of course, Hamilton has reiterated his desire to put the current season with Mercedes first, especially as he looks to end his 49-race winless streak.

“Right now, I want to finish here with a good result. So all my energy goes into this. Of course, there is excitement for the future. But right now we are going through difficult times. That’s my challenge.”

“That’s where all my energy goes, to try to figure out how we can get back to the top.” How can I work [better] with boys? How can I give better feedback, give them better direction to get back to fighting at the top?”

“First of all, I compete, so I want to win. Thinking about next year won’t help me with that.”

Hamilton made his worst start to his final season with Mercedes in his 12 years with the team, scoring just 10 points in the first 4 races of the season.
