Reflecting on Hamilton and Mercedes’ journey since 2022 and the advent of ground effect rules, Wolff said: “I think the last two years have been so difficult that we couldn’t really find performance, we couldn’t give the drivers a car that they could go for the win with.

“To have him win again, at the British Grand Prix, in his last race for Mercedes here, is almost a little fairytale. You couldn’t have said it better.”

Wolff continued: “It’s clear that our relationship goes back a long way. We’ve both suffered at different stages. He’s been there for me and recently I’ve tried to contribute to his doubts, sometimes.

“That’s why it feels really good that he was able to put all the negative thoughts, all the negativity, aside and come out with this performance. I think it’s a weight off his shoulders.”
