Ricciardo needs the Mercedes seat in 2023 or 2024 as his swan song and can teach Russell the ropes as teamates.. Ricciardo deserves it... Hamilton, Verstappen, Leclerc,Russell and Ricciardo are the best of the best and deserve to showcase it.

I’d love to read his autobiography/business management/leadership book!

To me Toto Wolff & Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 is similar to Alex Ferguson & Man United. Top class manager
Alfons Pettersson
The humbleness of Wolff is something to strive for! Dont remember exactly how he said it but its something along the lines of "i dont know areodynamics well or how to build an engine, but i know how to communicate with People and take care of them so they can do their job even better"

By far the best one on one interview in a while. Toto is a man of few words, but every word is well articulated. Glad to hear him for 90% of the video. Excellent interview.

I think what stood out to me the most was that the interviewer is using the beaten term used by every corporate entity "family", Toto was very careful to use his own term "cameradery", and you continue to see that same attention to detail and selective answering through the interview. That man is a beast!

I want to know how much of Mercedes' success is down to having the technically best engine vs having the best teamwork and workplace culture? Hard to know for sure, if it's the engine then all this talk is pretty much redundant and misleading

Merc achieved their success without embroiled in any technical nor sporting controversies (under Merc ownership), unlike their nemesis. That commands the admiration.

@WhiteNinjainblack the engine development was freezed for HONDA. Without that, Honda couldn't reach this level.
Are you kidding or what? What about FIA, and rule that Engine development is freezed when Mercedes had built most powerful engine on the grid.

German perfectionist, we can clearly see that. He has definitely worked to being the best, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't that smooth and 'fair' during the Nico period - a 'mistakes were made but it was part of a process and growing/learning as a team' would have been nice

Toto's honesty is incredibly admirable. From even a brief mention of trauma in his youth explaining his winning mentality, to the flaws he saw at Mercedes taking over as principle. Toto could run a flower shop and I'd still work for him.

@A Bloke with a name thats more to do with the exciting tracks we have had this year, baring the midfield battle and Monza it has been a sleepfest, the sport is going a downward spiral if the leading car laps the 4th place car regularly. And evidently with some of F1 tweets clearly relying on Rain, red flags etc to make it an exciting race, clearly shows what's wrong with the sport
A Bloke with a name
Well if you only look at the boring races we had then it's a massive sleepfest, but set that aside we've had a lot of decent to extraordinary races this year.

Ferrari would have 7 easy had the FIA not decided to target them with rules changes. Also, Toto didn't build the success we see in Mercedes today, it was Ross Brawn and Michael Schumacher. The same guys who did the 6 in a row with Ferrari. Toto and Lewis are just right place right time to reap the benefits of the work they put in.

LOL. When Scumacher contract end, they prefer Hamilton than Schumacher. When Hamilton saw the car, he said that the car need huge modification and he was right.

@jedikillah101 yeah I agree with you, it's just interesting to see the allegations whether founded or not, about Mercedes favouring Hamilton in subtle ways. For instance at Imola; Bottas asking to go on the softer compound tyre for his pitstop, to go on an alternate strategy to Hamilton but it getting refused by the team. It's the little instances which I think can really play on a driver's mind, whether it's one of kind great or a rookie as their teammate
jedikillah101 2 napja
I get it, Hamilton is the 7 time world champion after all and a talent that only appears once in a generation. I think we are so used to seeing the greatness of Hamilton that everytime Bottas makes a mistake, it's amplified. Bottas is great, just not AS great as Hamilton.

@rounak Everyone can tell you are not performing when you are leaving without telling anyone, thats not special. But the leaders who give everything themselfes expect nothing less from their workers and colleagues. That means if you dont want to dedicate your life to F1 its not the right thing and only few people are willing to do that

@Doug Parker You are correct that Stewart-Haas has won many races since they started. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of our only American F1 team and have great respect for Gunther Steiner.

You won by rules and regulations which favoured you, the FIA is in your pocket. When the rules tie the hands of other teams behind their backs it is no longer a fair sport. So if you win a 100 times, F1 is a defunct sport. And you can shove your titles you know where.

@Farid Atawneh if it's not cheat, why this year Ferrari engine losing its power? Obviously it's against the rule. That's a cheat. Compared to Mercedes DAS, that's not against this year rule.

What Todo and Hamilton has done for Mercedes is priceless. 8 Constructors championship and 7 drivers championship both surpassing Ferrari in consecutive wins And matching Schumi's Record in the modern era. This is Legacy built. Exactly the sorta validity to a company's highest claims that would see's its doors breaking open with new customers for decades to come. Ferrai's Fan hood is a cult, due to Ferraris mythos and legacy. Now Mercedes has that in spades, having effectively taken the spot long held by Ferrari. Children of this era, see Mercedes as the unstoppable force in F1 as did kids of the past saw Ferrari. And those kids grow up to be future buyers and investors in the brand they saw was winners. Mecedes F1 success is priceless to a luxury brands image. And Mercedes is doing very well right now. a legacy that will likely hold for decades to come, if not till the end of modern F1.

Toto under his leadership has brought together the best engineers and designers to produce an unbeatable car.I’m afraid I am not a driver fanboy.Driver fanboys and girls are essential to the sport though the drivers who have won both F3 and GP2 are amazing talents who I have the utmost respect for.This includes Hamilton though he’s not the only one currently in F1 and anyone of those drivers could be victorious in such a wonderful car.The engineers and designers though,don’t receive the praise and accolades drivers do which is grossly unfair.

Electric power ?, so you're saying that Mercedes engines has an extra mini electric motor to power the wheels ? If so then why is Williams still at the back of the grid ? This comment is a massive laughing stock.
