Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says it is too early to write off Mercedes’ 2022 championship chances, because “it can swing in our direction again”.
In a short talk with Austrian OE24, Toto Wolff was asked if Mercedes has written off their 2022 title chances, considering the problems they have been facing in the first five races of the season.
“No, not at all,” Wolff said.
“We’ve only got the fifth race behind us, you can’t write anything off, it can swing in our direction again. And in terms of points, we’re not far behind.
Toto was then asked about his expectations for this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix.

The Austrian highlighted the importance of Mercedes returning to the track on which they tested their first more conventional version of the W13, before they introduced the current ‘zero-sidepod’ concept.
“Phew. Barcelona will be interesting for us because we tested there with a fast car in February. We want to continue where we left off. That could be a mini milestone in that direction.
“But we have to be realistic – we’re still only third behind Red Bull and Ferrari,” Wolff concluded.
