Wolff explains difference between Hamilton and Bottas: That pressure...

Mercedes haven't yet been able to win the 2020 World Championship, but the dominance of the Germans is becoming increasingly clear. Again a 1-2 for Mercedes and especially a great performance by Lewis Hamilton who breaks Michael Schumacher's career win record! Team boss Toto Wolff has his say the matter. 

"92 race wins. Who would have thought that when we embarked on the project in 2013? It's almost a surreal amount of wins," Toto Wolff told Sky Sports in amazement. The Austrian team boss is still amazed at the work that Hamilton does every day to get the most out of his car.

Hamilton puts pressure on Bottas

"Absolute passion and energy that he puts into the sport. He has the talent and ability which just stands out. It is the first time this year that I see him building up the weekend from training to the race. He reflects a lot, understanding the tyre for the race," said the Mercedes team principal, who also sees Hamilton waiting for the right time to beat Bottas.

"I think we've seen that a couple of times now and that pressure puts Bottas in a worse position in relation to the tyres. He's very good at it strategically," Wolff concluded.
