Since the introduction of Formula 1’s turbo hybrid regulations, the German company has been on a roll. It appears that neither title will likely be won this year, which would be the first time since 2014. Toto Wolff, the Mercedes boss, claims that the brutal reality of dealing with loss in Formula 1 is very different from the rosy Instagram postings that romanticize it and will be character-building.

Despite George Russell’s surprise pole position at the Hungarian Grand Prix, Mercedes’ troubles with their challenging W13 prevented it from winning a race so far in 2022. At the same time, the squad has frequently emphasized the benefits of losing and then coming back stronger in the past. According to Wolff, the reality is far more difficult to deal with when dealing with a campaign like the one it is currently going through.

Talking about the ordinary season, Wolff said, “Today we’re getting it wrong. Maybe there is a single thing that overshadows everything. Therefore we’re not doing justice to question every part of the car.” Toto Wolff further added, “You never lose; you learn. But I can tell you it’s very difficult: with all these nice Instagram posts and everything we’ve talked about over eight years about how we will take this.”

Mercedes’ priority right now is to ensure that its 2023 car is a step ahead. Toto Wolff does not want to forego the remainder of the season. While all is going on, Lewis Hamilton has said he can’t wait to put the W13 to rest, and Toto Wolff admits that the vehicle won’t go down in Mercedes history with much affection.

Toto Wolff Warns Oscar Piastri Of ‘Karma’!

There has been a tussle going on between McLaren and Alpine. And now, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has also commented on the issue. Toto Wolff has questioned Oscar Piastri‘s judgment in openly rejecting his Alpine squad on social media. Piastri was a member of the Renault turned Alpine academy when he won the Formula 3 and Formula 2 championships. He didn’t, however, have a series to enter this year. So, he joined the Formula 1 team as a test and reserve driver. 

Toto Wolff is skeptical of Oscar Piastri’s reaction after Alpine announced his inclusion in the 2023 Formula One lineup. The manager believes that the driver ought to have exercised caution before speaking out against a large corporation like Alpine.

Wolff also said, “I believe in karma, I believe in integrity. But I’m not here to judge because as I said, I don’t know the legal situation.” In his analysis of the case, Wolff contends that Piastri ought to have been more honest and faithful to Alpine. He made a suggestion that his position might end up costing him in the long run.
