Mercedes Regrets Giving Hamilton Team Orders In Abu Dhabi Finale

Mercedes Formula One boss Toto Wolff is still pondering how to deal with Lewis Hamilton's driving tactics in the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, but has accepted it was something the three-time world champion needed to do.

"We have no problem about how he raced in Abu Dhabi", said the F1 legend, referring to how Hamilton ignored team instructions and backed teammate Nico Rosberg into chasing rivals' cars.

"In the heat of the moment, sometimes when you make decisions you get them wrong", Wolff told Sky Sports F1.

"Our system has made them win many races, but has also created that air of dominance ... but again, let's discuss at a later stage".

Just five days after that enthralling race, Rosberg called time on his Formula One career and Mercedes are now busy finding the German's replacement.

La La Land is an escape for cinema audiences, says Ryan Gosling
Billboard caught up with the songwriters of " La La Land ", Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and they talked about what it was like to hear both Stone and Ryan Gosling sing.

"While it would be a big step up for him (Wehrlein), he seems to be the man the punters are predicting to replace the world champion", said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.

There are various candidates for the vacant seat, including Fernando Alonso, Valtteri Bottas and even Jenson Button.

The Brackley-based team is now in the process of weighing up its options over who will replace newly-retired champion Nico Rosberg, who last week sensationally quit the sport just days after landing his first F1 world title.

"I think it was a great race result, a great ending not only for the team but for the sport as a whole - that will have really brought new fans to the sport", he said. When he came, everything changed, so he has played a role. The team is left to figure out who can replace him well after most teams solidified their line-ups for 2017.

Those talks will focus on the fact that the team still have to come up with ways of managing potential situations where a driver's individual objective does not align with those of the team.
