Lewis Hamilton Will Not Bail Out Any More Says Mercedes F1 Boss Toto Wolff

Lewis Hamilton will be taking a “change of approach” in his Formula 1 title battle with Max Verstappen according to his Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff, and the decision could increase the likelihood of the two making contact on-track once again.

Verstappen was given a grid penalty for this weekend’s Russian Grand Prix after the stewards decided he was at fault for the crash at Monza last time out which left the rear of his Red Bull Racing car hanging on the titanium halo protecting Hamilton’s head after they fought hard into turn one.

Earlier this season, of course, the pair clashed on the opening lap of the British Grand Prix as they entered Copse corner, with Verstappen shunted out of the race and the stewards finding seven-time world champion Hamilton at fault on that occasion.

That incident led to a very public spat between both drivers and included Red Bull boss Christian Horner, who criticised Hamilton and the Mercedes team for celebrating their victory in the aftermath of the Verstappen crash.

Ahead of the Russian Grand Prix this afternoon, Wolff explained that Hamilton will be changing tact in order to try and overhaul Verstappen’s lead in the standings, and a more aggressive strategy seems to be the key.

“I think the change of approach is that Lewis decided not to bail out anymore when he thinks the corner is his,” said Wolff.
