Wolff sets deadline for Hamilton to decide whether he wants to stay in F1 – “I have had enough of that”

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff is set to meet Lewis Hamilton to discuss his driver’s future, saying that he has set a date in February.

Hamilton hasn’t been seen since he was robbed at the Abu Dhabi GP. His absence has cast massive doubt over his future, with the seven-time champion firmly in the crosshairs of the retirement scope.

Wolff met the FIA’s new president Mohammed Ben Sulayem last Friday to discuss the events of Yas Marina and his driver’s absence. All we know about the British driver is that he is reportedly in Colorado training and spending his off-season in solitude.

Wolff is set to meet Hamilton to discuss his future, saying that he will do everything in his power to right the wrong he had to go through.

“No matter what obstacle has been put in Lewis’ way, he’s known all his life that he has to do his speaking on the track,” the Austrian said, as quoted by grandpx.news.

“Mind you, it’s incredibly difficult for him until he finds the path for him between right and wrong. He just needs time.

“At the latest, we will meet again in February, and it will not be to drink tequila. I have had enough of that in Abu Dhabi.”

Never letting it go

“He will never forget what happened in Abu Dhabi, because what happened to Lewis was a mistake,” he continued.

“He was unbeatable on that day, until the officials blew a fuse and decided to commit several infringements.

“It is difficult to understand and something that will always stay with us. Max (Verstappen) was a worthy champion throughout the season, but on that day Lewis was better and he did not win.”
