Mercedes apologised to Lewis Hamilton after taking him a victory at Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday.

 

Reigning champion was leading when safety car was employed, but then he was called in pitstop for fresh tyres what proved to be a huge mistake. Team boss Toto Wolff said the calculations were wrong and apologised to British driver who finished third.

 

“I apologise for this wrong team’s decision. He’s a great leader and a great driver. I am sure he will understand sometimes we make errors. We were concerned that the tyres are losing temperature and that’s why they might be vulnerable. We thought we had a gap which we didn’t have when the safety car came out and Lewis was behind and the calculation was simply wrong. We expected to have a couple of seconds more,” said Wolff.

 

Hamilton is still at the top of the Drivers’ championship, but the margin between him and Nico Rosberg is now just ten points.
