Toto Wolff gives his thoughts on whether a first win of the year for Lewis Hamilton at the 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix would be “poetic justice”.

Mercedes has had its ups and downs with their car throughout the 2022 season. While the team was not able to challenge for top spots in certain races, there were others, like the Hungarian and Dutch grands prix, where they have been serious contenders for a race win.

However, the team is yet to get that elusive first win of the season. Still, Toto Wolff believes it is possible.

“It would be awesome if we could win a race on merit without any grid penalties,” the Austrian said.

“If you had asked after Spa, I would have said [it was] impossible [to win in 2022]. Then Zandvoort, we nearly won that one, but Monza was not good.

“So that must be the target. We don’t want to end a season with no race win. Even if the sail is absolutely set for 2023, it would be quite a nice thing in a difficult season for all of our people.”

Considering how Lewis Hamilton unjustly lost the 2021 championship, after race director Michael Masi broke the rules which govern the use of the Safety Car, Wolff was asked if a first win of 2022 for Lewis Hamilton at Yas Marina would be ‘poetic justice’?

“Poetic justice… I don’t think anything is going to bring us that championship back next year…

“So, wherever,” the Austrian concluded.
