Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says he doesn’t think “anybody will run away with eight championships in a row going forward”.

Mercedes won every Constructors’ Championship from 2014 to 2021 and – with that – the team surpassed Ferrari’s record of seven constructors’ titles in a row.

However, team boss Toto Wolff believes the new Formula 1 rules, designed to make the racing closer and – with the budget cap – to allow more teams to compete on a level playing field, will make it almost impossible for anybody to surpass Mercedes’ record in the future.

“You just need to play a better game than the others,” the Austrian said.

“It’s a relative competition. We know who our competitors are today, there will be others tomorrow and after tomorrow, because of the cost cap limits that have been set.

“This is what the sport should be – not one team, not three, maybe five. So the landscape has changed. I don’t think anybody will run away with eight championships in a row going forward.

“This is the way the regulations have been designed,” Wolff concluded.
