Lewis Hamilton’s boss Toto Wolff has already decided he will leave Mercedes for Aston Martin, according to former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.
Hamilton has made it clear his plans going forward are tied into those of Wolff.
“As far as I know, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff has long decided to leave Mercedes and join forces with Lawrence Stroll to buy Aston Martin,” Ecclestone told F1-Insider.com. “The two have been traveling inseparably for two years like twins around the world.
“And you have to know about Toto: He was also one of the princes I mentioned, who only thought for themselves and not their employers. Sure, he was successful, but would he have been so without the hybrid engines?”
