“He was obviously hoping to be in a Mercedes and win races and championships, which he got that timing wrong, but at least he has progressed to the midfield now!

“That time is going to come. He will win races, he will race for championships and I think he absolutely has it in him.

“I feel very good to have him in the team over the long term,” Wolff concluded.
