We are not doing it on purpose – Mercedes boss Toto Wolff

We are not doing it on purpose – Mercedes boss Toto Wolff » A tearful Lewis Hamilton joined the elite ranks of double F1 world champions on Sunday after a nerve-racking drive to victory in the floodlit season-ending Abu Dhabi GP.

In a race overshadowed by the ever-present specter of mechanical failure after the Briton’s Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg suffered an early loss of power, Hamilton powered to his 11th win in 19 races.

“We are not doing it on purpose,” says Mercedes’ executive director Toto Wolff. “It’s bitter sweet. Nico did not have a great start but he showed great sportsmanship.

“He will have a lot of new fans. We have a world champion who deserved to be a world champion.

“Nico probably had the strongest team-mate you can have. Nico scored more qualifying points which was Lewis’ discipline. We expect the battle to continue.

“We would like to sign Lewis up for a long time. He fits in so well with the team. When he wakes up tomorrow after a long night we will talk contracts.”
