Daimler denies rumours: Wolff remains team boss of Mercedes, even after 2020

According to several rumours, Toto Wolff would leave after the 2020 season as team boss at Mercedes, but this reporting is certainly disproved by Daimler. As the parent company of Mercedes, that organisation has a lot of influence on the Formula 1 team and it has therefore been decided that the collaboration with Wolff will be continued as the top man.

Wolff might go with Lawrence Stroll to buy the team from Mercedes, but it probably won't come to that. Daimler doesn't intend to sell the race stable, a spokesman seems to say indirectly. "Toto is and will remain our team boss - even after the end of the season", Jörg Howe from Daimler is definitely talking to the Deutsche Presse-Agentur.

Is there an agreement yet?

Wolff himself has always said that he will remain attached to Mercedes after his current contract ends, but he left it in the middle whether that would be as team boss or whether there would be another position for the Austrian. Apparently it has now been decided that his role as team boss will be continued in 2021 and the years that follow.

An official announcement is expected for the time being.
