Toto Wolff says “team bosses have already commented much too much” on the budget cap issue, and says the matter should be left to Mohammed Ben Sulayem and his team.
While the F1 world is waiting for the FIA to announce the official results of their assessment of the 2021 financial data submitted by all Formula 1 teams, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff calls for calm.
“This sport has always been so fascinating, because it has always been an on-track and an off-track battle,” the Austrian said.
“[In the past] when it was too quiet, Bernie [Ecclestone, former F1 boss] would throw some hand grenade in to just cause some mischief.
“Here we have the next topic that has just flared up. It is a very serious one, if it were to be deemed as true. We shall see.

“I think that team bosses have already commented much too much, because obviously we have been asked the questions.
“But this is a process that we have no involvement in. We just look after our own finances, we make sure that we provide all the materials to the auditors, and they judge whether we are we got it right or wrong.
“Then there is a dialogue that happens, how an interpretation was and why it was and why it wasn’t.
“I think we should probably also calm everything down and leave it to Mohammed [Ben Sulayem, FIA president] and his structure to say ‘this is actually the situation’,” Wolff concluded.
