Wolff tips intra-team battle to go to final race
12 May 2014 – Toto Wolff has tipped the title battle between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg to go down to the wire.
The Mercedes team boss made his comments after Hamilton led home Rosberg to give the outfit its fourth consecutive 1-2 finish and move the 2008 World Champion three points clear in the overall standings.
"We have incredible drivers who are capable of fighting until the last corner of the last lap to achieve success," said Wolff. "They were incredibly closely matched [in Spain] in spite of running different strategies in the race.
"Their battle is so intense and so close that I am sure it will carry on all the way to the final race."
Paddy Lowe, the team's technical chief, added: "It's great to watch both sides of the garage working so well. Lewis and Nico delivered great drives and to see a gap of 0.6s after 66 laps just about sums it up."
The Formula 1 paddock now moves on to Monaco, where Rosberg claimed victory last season.
