Toto Wolff says 2021 regulations a chance for Mercedes to prove themselves!

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says that Mercedes have no right to go into 2021 as favourites, despite their huge success over the last six seasons. 2021 will see major rule changes, threatening their dominance that started at the last major rule change, in 2014.

The Silver Arrows won 15 of the 21 races in 2019 and will go into 2020 expecting to win their seventh consecutive double, but 2021 may be tougher.

Wolff said in Mercedes' end of season review: "2021 is going to be a completely new challenge because the regs are being put upside down.

"What [exists] today in terms of aero will not exist anymore in 2021.

"And I believe it's an opportunity as a team to do a decent job and prove that we can go through a regulatory change and come out on top like we've done in the past.

"But certainly there is no sense of entitlement. Last year's records don't buy us any credit for future seasons to come.

"It's something that is very exciting for us and I personally really look forward to have 2021 coming."
