'Lewis was a man on his own planet' - Wolff
22 April 2014 – Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has paid homage to Lewis Hamilton following the Briton's dominant victory in China last weekend.
Hamilton led from start-to-finish and was never challenged as he took his third win in succession to close to within four points of team-mate, and runner-up, Nico Rosberg. Rosberg now has 79 points in the Drivers' Championship, while Hamilton has 75.
"From the beginning, Lewis was a man on his own planet, looking quicker than everyone else and making the tyres last longer than we thought," Wolff confirmed.
"It's a great result for the team to get the third 1-2 in a row - congratulations to all the guys and girls who have worked so hard to put us at this level of performance," he added. "Now we are aiming to continue this good form going into the European season."
Meanwhile, Wolff also praised Rosberg too: "It was a difficult race after losing the telemetry on Nico's car, which shows how much of an exceptional race he drove considering this was a big limitation," he explained.
