Wolff hoping for new engine suppliers

Toto Wolff has been Mercedes team boss for a long time and has had great success with the German team. Since 2014 Mercedes has won all championships and again this year they will take both titles. Their dominance has often enough raised the question whether it is healthy that Mercedes is so dominant, but Wolff has a clear answer to that.

"I have been in Formula 1 for 12 years and every year we hear that F1 is sick. The truth is that there will always be difficult moments, so it is important that we see it positively," Wolff explained in front of Ziggo Sport's cameras.

"I have been in Formula 1 for twelve years and every year we hear again that the F1 is sick. The truth is that there will always be difficult moments, so it is important that we see it positively."

Shame Honda are leaving F1

"If you look at the main markets, it is very peculiar to see that this sport is growing through TV, as the only sport. Social media is not going fast normally and the number of fans has risen by 25%, mainly thanks to Max and the other young drivers. That is also the future target group. It is enormously good news and gives me hope that we will continue to be one of the biggest sports." 

“It is a real shame that Honda is leaving the sport. Honda is a great brand and has put Red Bull Racing back on the map. That is very important for them. However, we have three engine manufacturers now and that's more than in most seasons. There may even be a new one in the future."
