After a difficult Emilia Romagna Grand Prix Sprint Qualifying, Toto Wolff gave his opinion on Mercedes’ current situation.
“It is obvious that we are not anywhere near the fight at the front,” Wolff said.
“It would be a pretty unrealistic to claim we have a slot among the frontrunners fighting for the championship.”

“I think what we saw today is that we haven’t got a car with enough performance differential to some of the midfield cars to overtake them.
“If we were running in free air then the picture would not be any different to the previous races.
“But there is just not a big enough gap to overtake cars and the car is not good enough to overtake cars that are within 0.4s or 0.5s in lap time performance,” Wolff concluded.
