Mercedes F1 team boss Toto Wolff says he already knows the identity of his successor at the head of the seven-time world champion Formula 1 team. Just after winning a seventh constructors’ title this Sunday at the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix, Mercedes team director Wolff told the media that he had already identified the person capable of replacing him in his position.
The Austrian has been making no secret for several months that he wants to step back.
“It’s just great, and this afternoon is just the culmination of everything, a lot of blood, sweat and tears behind closed doors. A lot of sacrifices that are not always so visible. ” said Wolff at his team’s celebration after winning a seventh title.
“But what stands out is the comradeship we’ve had in the team all these years, the good values too. And when I think about our achievements, which are supported in Germany and everyone at Brackley and Brixworth, I just have a smile on my face.”
The Austrian said that he was now beginning to look at “the next chapter of his career” & “I believe that everyone has a certain lifespan in a role. ”
