Wolff expects a challenge in Spa & Monza: It will be difficult to beat Ferrari

Toto Wolff believes the next two Grands Prix following Formula 1's summer break will be a challenge for Mercedes. He expects the two tracks to play into the hands of rivals Ferrari

Sebastian Vettel hasn't won a Formula 1 race since the 2018 Belgian Grand Prix almost 12 months ago. Mercedes has dominated the sport completely having won 10 out of 12 races during the 2019 Formula 1 season.

In Hungary, Lewis Hamilton had to fight Max Verstappen for the race win. But the boss of Mercedes expects something different in Spa and Monza.

"It's [Hungary] a track that probably doesn't suit them [Ferrari] very well. They have a very strong engine and less drag, and that's why we will see a very strong Ferrari in Spa and in Monza. I have no doubt that the conversation could be totally different than the one we're having right now," Wolff told Motorsport

"It's going to be difficult for us and that's why it's about enjoying the moment and starting [this week] we have to sort out our problems in order to be competitive at Spa."
