Wolff admits dismay upon hearing of Hamilton superbike test

Written by  Dec 27, 2018

Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff has revealed a frantic effort to contact Lewis Hamilton after hearing of his Yamaha superbike test at Jerez.

The five-time Formula 1 champion spent his first weekend of the winter break at the Spanish circuit fulfilling his passion for motorbikes at a private event.

Normally, drivers would be expected to gain permission their employer given the risk of injury but it was clear by Wolff's reaction that Lewis kept it a secret.

"When the news spread, I tried to call him, in vain," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "So I called one of the three engineers who was with him.

"'Where are you?'. 'Er, um, we're on a track.' 'Are you turning all three on the motorbike, then?' 'Yes, but ... we're done ',” Toto said reciting the awkward conversation.

"We all had a liberating laugh, but it is clear that for Christmas I will not give him a bike!" Wolff joked.
