F1 LIVE: Lewis Hamilton offered hope in Imola as Oscar Piastri reacts to losing P2


Lewis Hamilton has been offered hope by Toto Wolff after the Mercedes chief insisted the Silver Arrows are moving in the right direction. Hamilton is set to start the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix from eighth, while his team-mate George Russell will begin the race in sixth place.

“If you look at the gap to the front and our closest competitors, you see progress,” Wolff explained ahead of the seventh Grand Prix of the year. “P6 and P8 are not the positions we want to be in. We have been saying that for a while, but we see that the lead of others is getting smaller. It takes time and we have to be patient, that’s the reality at the moment.

“We know we have developments in the pipeline that will improve the balance of the car. Even though our positions are not good enough now, we are moving in the right direction. During the race, we will focus on maximising the package we have now and try to score good points.”
