Toto Wolff: “We want to hopefully be fighting for wins soon, and Red Bull are a minute ahead. We are making big elephant steps on developments in the factory, but it’s going to take a long time until they are adequate to challenge Red Bull. Everyone is working flat-out.” pic.twitter.com/AS55B0MSG4

Despite remaining in his position throughout Mercedes’ period of dominance, Wolff has indicated that the current challenges facing the team are not significant enough to compel him to step down from his role.
“I would have no shame that I’ll criticise from the sidelines, from a TV screen, and know it better. But, until then, I think I still have fun doing it, he continued. “And obviously turning the ship around, after so many successful years, that’s really a good challenge.“
As a shareholder in the team, Wolff’s role as team principal differs from that of some of his competitors. However, although his position as a shareholder would not prevent him from being asked to resign if the management board deemed it necessary, he feels confident in the solid support system surrounding him.

When inquired about the response of Mercedes’ remaining shareholders, Wolff remarked, “The individuals at Mercedes and INEOS who hold key positions are high-performance personnel, whether it be within the core business or in the sporting arena.“
“We have all been through downs and ups and there is not a millimeter of doubt. There is so much support from them in order to get us back on track.”
“I couldn’t wish, from neither Jim [Ratcliffe] nor Ola [Kallenius], and all the others that are associated with this, for better support.”
