Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says he has a “certain degree of confidence” in the team’s “abilities” as they prepare for the big regulations change in 2026.

Formula 1 will introduce its next big regulations change in 2026, this time with brand new power units.

The last time power unit regulations were changed was in 2014, and at that time Mercedes managed embark on an unprecedented run of success.

When asked about Mercedes’ progress with their power unit as they prepare for 2026, team boss Toto Wolff said he is confident in the team’s abilities, but warned nothing is guaranteed.

“Well, this is the certain degree of confidence that I have in our abilities,” the Austrian said.

“We saw at HPP [Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains] in 2014, we got that right, but there’s no guarantee we’re going to get it right in ’26.

“We are giving it the utmost effort and we’ve set targets that we believe that are high enough and ambitious enough to have a very competitive power unit.

“2014 was a more journey into the unknown because it was such a change of regulation, but this is a little bit [of a] similar situation,” Wolff concluded.
