The 2016 world champion Rosberg said that the rumored dynamic of Toto Wolfe’s resignation as team leader may cause the team to start a downward trend.
Rosberg noticed that Hamilton had not renewed his contract. In recent weeks, Wolff confirmed that his long-term role and positioning in the team is still under discussion, hinting that he may no longer serve as team leader. However, he denied that this had an impact on Hamilton's decision.
But Rosberg said that Wolf's future plans do have an impact on Hamilton, because Wolf's departure will cause changes within the team.
"I think the two are related," Rosberg said. "Lewis trusts Wolf very much. This is part of the team's success. Toto is definitely the key to success. No one promises that once Toto leaves the team, he will maintain stability. Many people will say: "Okay, this era is over, Toto is gone, I just want to agree with him, let us also find new places to go", this is definitely the starting trend of the team going downward Logo," he emphasized.
