Wolff shuts down Liberty Media rumours

Toto Wolff has been linked with a possible move to the top of F1 with Liberty Media, but the Austrian seems to have put those rumours to bed admitting if it doesn't come from him it probably isn't true.

Wolff has been involved with Mercedes as an executive director since 2013 after he left Williams where he had shares. Since joining the Silver Arrows Wolff has known nothing but success, winning every title since 2014, with Lewis Hamilton winning four of the last five World Championships.

Recently Wolff was linked to a possible role at Liberty Media, with Chase Carey's contract reportedly set to come to an end. However, Wolff has quite emphatically shut it down and warned not to trust what is said, unless it comes from him

Wolff told Motorsport.com"I wonder who linked my name to that.

"But interestingly, that does not happen and I did not apply for a job. I'm very happy with Mercedes. 

"I enjoy my role in representing one of the best brands in the world and since I have been given the autonomy to run the team on behalf of Mercedes as well as possible, I enjoy the relationships within the team and the relationship with my friends from Daimler.

"So what is being said does not come from me and it is not a reflection of the situation."
