Toto Wolff: Monaco looks challenging on paper for Mercedes

It's hard to believe that the Mercedes team will be challenged after pulling off five-consecutive one-two results in 2019. But boss Toto Wolff isn't getting complacent as he insists Monaco will be a challenge.

The Silver Arrows haven't been successful in Monte Carlo since Nico Rosberg won in 2016. In those two years, Ferrari and then Red Bull have been dominant around the streets. Wolff uses this history to show why he expects a challenge.

"The next two weeks are going to be a tremendous challenge for us. We've not had the performance in Monaco in the last few years. Remember how strong Ricciardo was last year in the Red Bull. They were in a league of their own," Wolff said in an interview on Crash.

“We need to take one step at a time. The next race weekend looks challenging on paper. That is massively exciting for us to go there. I wish we could go there tomorrow. Everybody's working flat out to try to understand the car for Monaco and really be strong there."
