Very strange situation – Toto Wolff

Nico Rosberg romped to an unchallenged pole position in Russia as Lewis Hamilton suffered a power unit problem, a similar issue to that which affected him in China.

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff has been speaking about Lewis Hamilton’s engine failure, admitting Nico Rosberg is having “all the luck”.

“It’s a very bizarre situation because it looks like the same failure as China,” Wolff told Sky F1.

“It’s very unfortunate for Lewis. He seems to have all the bad luck and the other side of the garage seems to have all the luck.”

“All the other teams are pushing so hard and you need to find performance. If you have to extract every bit, sometimes you are reaching the limits. I don’t think that is the problem in the case but that is normal in Formula 1.”

“I hope not,” Mercedes boss Toto Wolff told Sky Sports F1 when asked if Hamilton could suffer grid drop.
“But we need to discuss with the FIA what we want to do and then hopefully make it without a penalty.”
Hamilton still under pressure with Mercedes unable to confirm they expect to fix the problem – or – other elements may be needed to solve the issues, it will give him more grid penalty.
“This is the second engine that I took from the last race and it’s the same failure as I had in the last race,” said Hamilton.

“Ij ust went back out in Q2 at the end to get a feel for the lap and I lost the same power as I lost in China. Nothing I can do.”
