Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes team will give their absolute all at the Russian Grand Prix this weekend in the knowledge that any more victories between now and the end of the season must be earned the hard way.
That is the declaration of team principal Toto Wolff.
Hamilton extended his lead in the drivers’ championship to 40 points by winning in Singapore a fortnight ago, with Mercedes climbing 37 points clear of Ferrari in the constructors’ title standings.
That offers the Brit and the Silver Arrows a welcome cushion ahead of Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel as they look to defend their double titles for a fifth straight season.

Lewis Hamilton: Mercedes boss makes Russian Grand Prix vow over title battle
“We showed an excellent performance in Singapore and the victory was a fantastic reward for all the hard work that had gone into it,” Wolff told Mercedes’ official website.
"But it also reinforced another point, there are no easy wins this season.
"We have to fight hard for every bit of performance in order to have a chance to fight for victories. This fight will continue in Russia.
“It's obviously better to have a lead than to not have it, but there are six races remaining and plenty of points to score, so it doesn't give us any comfort.

"We will continue to concentrate on every single session, trying to optimise the car in every possible area - and we will go for the race win.
"There is no naive optimism about our situation within the team: our mind-set is very positive, we are energised.
“The factories are buzzing and we're excited for the fight that we will certainly have in the next six races."
Former two-time world champion Mika Hakkinen believes Vettel and Ferrari only have themselves to blame for their points deficit.

The Finn told bookmakers Unibet: “In extending his world championship lead to 40 points, Hamilton gives Sebastian Vettel a lot of work to do if he is to challenge for the title in the remaining six grands prix.
"Ferrari should really be leading this championship, but there have been too many mistakes, and some strange decisions.”
The Russian Grand Prix weekend gets underway in Sochi tomorrow with the first free practice session at 9am UK time, with FP2 following at 1pm.
Mercedes have won all four races here with Hamilton taking two of those victories, though none since 2015.
