Wolff responds to Aston Martin rumours: I'm not going to be the CEO

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has denied the rumours of him becoming CEO at Aston Martin. It was reported the Austrian would leave for the British supercar manufacturer in 2021 to guide them in their new Formula 1 adventure.

The rumors started when Wolff missed the crucial phone call that took place between all team bosses to discuss the coronavirus situation. Technical director James Allison was the stand-in for the former Williams team boss. There was no explanation for Wolff's absence.

In 2021, Aston Martin will take over the current Racing Point team, after Racing Point owner Lawrence Stroll bought a stake in the British carmaker. He would like to lure Wolff to his side in exchange for a job as CEO.

Wolff denied this rumour via WhatsApp to Motorsport.com.

"The story is not true, I am not going to be the CEO of Aston Martin," Wolff sent from the Maldives, where he and his family are spending their time during the forced stop in F1 season.

Wolff has previously invested in teams. He owns part of Mercedes' Formula 1 team, and he used to be the same at Williams and HWA. He is said to be interested in investing in Aston Martin as well.
