Wolff: 'There is nothing to lose, we have a deficit towards Red Bull'

Mercedes can start the summer break with a good feeling. The team took the lead in both championships in the last race at the Hungaroring.

In the mid-season review of Mercedes, we hear Toto Wolff's final words before the summer break really begins. "The last few months have been really intense. We had a good period in early spring, we were able to compete strongly in Portimao and Barcelona and then we had a few races that were really bad, starting with Monaco and then Baku."

"But since then we have somehow found our grip, we have learned, we have discovered how our car performs with the new tyres and I think we returned to a much better place in Silverstone and here in Hungary", the team boss says in the video.

Mercedes have nothing to lose

Even though Mercedes currently leads the championship, Wolff says the team is still behind their rival Red Bull Racing. In the second half of the season, the team will be pulling out everything to win.

"We’re really pushing the boundaries and that also means pushing each other to almost the breaking point in order to win the championship. The hopes are one thing, the expectations are another thing and the reality can be a different thing too. I think we are the hunters, we approach this with fun. There is nothing to lose for us because we have a deficit towards our competitors so we just have to win and continue the journey with great anticipation", Wolff said.
