Austin – “I think there were some interesting strategic moves and a great fight. In the end we thought we could smell the win, but the moment you get close to the car it’s hard, they chose a very aggressive first stop, it was bold. They deserved to win today.” We haven’t talked to Lewis. We have to get over it. The car wasn’t fast enough on the medium tyres.” These are Toto Wolff’s words to Sky Sports’ microphones after United States Grand Prix, seventeenth seasonal designation of Formula 1. The Mercedes team principal praised Red Bull’s rivals, who brought two drivers to the podium with Max Verstappen first and Sergio Perez third.
“Mexico has traditionally been a difficult path for us, but this season everything can change Speaking of the next stage of F1 in Mexico, Wolff added. I think we’ve had some tough battles with Ferrari in the past and won seven times in a row. It’s hard now, but we’re having fun. I think morale is high. We can win every race, but above all we need to avoid retirements, which is why we are changing the engines.”
