Toto Wolff says the announcement that he has signed on as Mercedes’ team principal for three more years is a misunderstanding, he has signed on “for life”.

On Friday Mercedes announced that team boss Toto Wolff will serve as the team’s principal for at least three more years, ending a year-long speculation about his future.

“He will have the subsequent opportunity to transition to a new executive function within the organisation when he decides it is the right time to do so,” added Mercedes in a statement.

It has also been announced that Toto Wolff’s stake in the team will increase to a little over 33%. Now the Austrian says the announcement of a three-year deal has been misunderstood, as he will remain with Mercedes “for life”.

“I have not committed myself for three more years, but for life!” Wolff was quoted by Motorsport-Total.com.

“We are now three shareholders who own the company. Mercedes is what I do.”
