Lewis Hamilton could QUIT F1 after being left 'disillusioned' by Max Verstappen's title win, says Mercedes boss Wolff12/16/2021
LEWIS HAMILTON could sensationally QUIT Formula One following Max Verstappen's controversial win in Abu Dhabi.
Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says Hamilton will NEVER get over being 'robbed' of the world title by FIA race director, Michael Masi.
It comes as Hamiton's team decided to withdraw their intention to appeal against the result, as SunSport reported.
Both Hamilton and Wolff will both shun the FIA's gala prize giving ceremony in Paris on Thursday, potentially triggering a fine for failing to attend.
But Wolff is more concerned that the seven-time world champion will now turn his back on F1 altogether.
Wolff said: "Lewis and I are disillusioned at the moment. We are not disillusioned with the sport – we love the sport with every bone in our body and we love it because the stopwatch never lies.
"But if we break that fundamental principle of sporting fairness and authenticity, then suddenly the stopwatch doesn't become relevant anymore because we are exposed to random decision-making, it is clear you may fall out of love with it.
"You start to question if all the work you have been putting in – all the sweat, tears and blood – can actually be demonstrated by performance on track, because it can be taken away randomly.
