In an interview with Auto Motor und Sport , the head of the Mercedes team spoke about his drivers.
Toto Wolff: "Lewis will always have a seat in our car as long as he wants to perform. He will be the first to tell me that it has ceased to bring pleasure or he thinks that he has some weaknesses.
Now we both want to continue and will continue to negotiate, as in previous years. I don't see any reason to change anything. Lewis Hamilton in Mercedes, as well as Michael Schumacher in Ferrari, are the best drivers of all time.
Last year George Russell performed on the same level as Lewis.
George came from a team where he had a slow and unstable car, but he also got behind the wheel of a difficult car with us. Lewis moved from the excellent W12 to the wheel of the W13, and also had to adapt. In some races George was ahead, in others Lewis was ahead.
And it wasn't about who would earn the most points and get ahead of a teammate in the championship. They worked together to eliminate the shortcomings of the machine so that it could win.
They treat each other with great respect. We understand that there is always rivalry between the drivers, but this rivalry cannot turn into a conflict that would harm the team. I have never allowed this and I will not allow it”.
