Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says his relationship with Lewis Hamilton “has grown over the years”, despite “some difficult times”.

In an interview with Sky Sport F1’s Natalie Pinkham, Toto Wolff was asked about his relationship with Lewis Hamilton and if their future with Mercedes is linked.

“We have something special because we have a very strong bond that has grown over the years,” Wolff said.

“We had some difficult times, not sharing opinions, but we have somehow been able to overcome these difficult times and grow together and stronger.

“Both of us have realised that when push comes to shove we trust each other. That’s very special.

“At the end of the day, I love working with him and I think he enjoys working with me and I think together – plus the other 2000 team principals [at Mercedes] – we can achieve a lot.

“But if one of us would call it a day for whatever reason the team is going to continue to perform. We would miss the best driver, clearly.

“On the other side if one of us, including myself, decides to go, the team is going to have the same performance, not an inch less.

“And I think we recognise that, although we want to stay together,” concluded the Austrian.
