If Hamilton opts for retirement, his would be a real indictment of F1 – the words of Toto Wolff to the Austrian newspaper Kronen newspaper – Hamilton had won on the track, then the referee made a mess, violating the rules. Verstappen is a worthy world champion, but in Abu Dhabi he didn’t win the best one, for Lewis this is really hard to swallow, he needs time. However, we hope to be able to see him again on the track ”.
