Toto Wolff is still very much in favour of the way Lewis Hamilton showed himself in the Spanish Grand Prix. The team boss sees this as a possible tipping point for the rest of the season, he tells The Race.

Hamilton started the race from sixth place, but after a collision with Kevin Magnussen, he fell back to the back positions. For the seven-time world champion, there was nothing left to do but fight his way back into the points. With a final fifth place, he could be satisfied.

Wolff was impressed and expressed his admiration in the interview. "That’s basically game over," he looks back on the incident. "But him continuing and then showing this very good pace was important. It was not only his morale but also our morale."

Wolff is also satisfied with team

The Austrian is not only complimentary about Hamilton, but he is also very satisfied with the team. The team boss believes that during a race weekend it is always about the dynamics between the team and driver. Wolff saw that this interaction worked very well in Barcelona. Next weekend the next GP awaits, as the teams travel to Monaco.
