Mercedes boss Toto Wolff is excited to share details about a new project despite the struggle on the F1 grid continues. The Brackley-based team was looking forward to the sixth Grand Prix race on the F1 calendar this year to implement new upgrades to their W14 car. But the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix got washed out due to a terrible flood in Italy. Evidently, it was a big blow to the team, which has been struggling since last year. Moreover, it does not seem like the end to their woes is anywhere near.
The Silver Arrows’ chief is trying his best to help the engineers and the rest of the team to provide the best car for both the drivers, Lewis Hamilton and George Russell. Despite all these challenges, he cannot afford to sit back home and lament because he has too many responsibilities. Mercedes F1 team is a big powerhouse along with Red Bull and Ferrari in F1 sport. These powerhouses have a lot of business ventures and projects to work on as the seasons of Formula One keep going. To achieve the requirement, Toto Wolff recently revealed the idea to revamp the entire Mercedes campus in Brackley, England.
