A Remote Presence

The recent medical issues of Toto Wolff forced him to miss the Suzuka race, and he’s also absent from the Qatar Grand Prix as he continues to recover.

The driver added that while Wolff may not be physically present at the race circuit, his impact and guidance are still palpable. Hamilton assured that his boss’ legacy and vision continue to drive the team forward, even in his absence.

A Strong Bond and Ongoing Collaboration

Lewis Hamilton claimed that he remains in regular contact with Woff, discussing not only racing but also casually bonding as friends. The partnership of the two goes beyond the track, with shared experiences, business insights, and mutual support.
