“Even though he’s not here in person, and he’s obviously devastated he can’t be here, he’s a part of every single meeting,” Hamilton told the media.
“He’s on the comms just like the guys back at the factory are on the comms for strategy all weekend. He is still 100% fully part, just not physically there in the country. He’s a part of those meetings, he speaks in all those meetings just as he does when he’s here.”
Hamilton: We try to make Wolff proud
“He’s worked incredibly hard to set up this team to be where it is today and he should be able to have weekends off without a problem,” the seven-time world champion added.
“He has the right to if he wanted to but it’s just because he’s recovering. I just tell him we’ll be pushing and I just always tell him don’t worry, you set up a great team, we’ll try and do you proud.”
