Saying goodbye after many years of collaboration or having to deal with a significant loss: everyone deals with this in a different way. Valtteri Bottas and Toto Wolff seemed to have found the ideal medicine in the night from Sunday to Monday, namely to throw quite a party. After the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, several unique images of the two appear in a club in Abu Dhabi.
Various images circulating on Twitter show Bottas and Wolff having fun in Abu Dhabi until the late hours. For Bottas, that will be with slightly different feelings than his team boss. The Finn is dropping off at the constructors’ champion, where he has to make way for protégé George Russell. From next season, Bottas will drive for the Alfa Romeo team and so he will close the 2021 season on the shoulders of his engineers with, it seems, quite a few drops behind his back.
Wolff sings along with ‘Fix You’
A little later you can see how Wolff also interferes in the celebrations of the Emirate. The team principal left the Yas Marina Circuit on Sunday evening after his team was proven wrong by the FIA over the protest against the race results. According to Mercedes, there was an incorrect race procedure in the final phase of the Grand Prix. In the end, Lewis Hamilton lost the title fight to Max Verstappen on the last lap, with Wolff expressing himself extremely frustrated over the team radio to the FIA. The images show how Wolff has forgotten the drama on the track for a while, although the Austrian does not seem completely familiar with the lyrics of Coldplay’s song ‘Fix You’.
