Toto Wolff expects Mercedes to make quick strides in the coming Grands Prix to get close to Red Bull Racing and Ferrari. This coming weekend in Monaco, he once again wants to get everything out of it, he says in the Mercedes preview.

Thanks to updates, Mercedes managed to secure a podium finish with George Russell in Barcelona. "It was fantastic to see George battling with the Red Bulls to earn a well-deserved podium finish, while Lewis' fight back through the field from P19 to P5 was incredibly impressive," Wolff concluded.

The team boss is keen that this is not a one-off but wants to maintain and raise the level in the coming races. He thinks his team is ready for the GP in Monaco. "We've seen so far this year that anything can happen and we'll be looking to maximise every opportunity."

Wolff and Horner side by side at press conference

On Saturday morning, Wolff joins Christian Horner, among others, at the FIA press conference. The two men do not have a very good relationship after the sensational 2021 season. However, with Mattia Binotto of Ferrari, they will have to sit side by side. A day earlier, Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz are in the same room.
