The Mercedes Team Principal believes the team must work hard to turn around its fortunes before the next regulation cycle.
Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff acknowledges the declining fortunes of the team and believes they need to put in maximum effort to turn things around. Lewis Hamilton’s recent prediction that Red Bull will remain dominant until 2026 has added urgency to the situation. While Mercedes showed promise in Mexico and Qatar, the Brazilian Grand Prix exposed weaknesses in their car. The team has seen changes in its senior management, with the departure of former Chief Technical Officer Mike Elliott. Wolff emphasizes the importance of doing everything possible to improve the team’s performance and avoid a prolonged period without winning races until the next regulation revamp in 2026.
