Throughout 2020 Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff was contemplating his future with the team. Now he reveals what his main concern was.

In late 2020 Mercedes announced Toto Wolff will be staying on as team boss for at least until 2023. The Austrian reveal what he was thinking about when he was contemplating leaving the team.

“I reflected for a year if I wanted to continue in this sport, and I took the decision, yes,” Wolff said.

“But the decision was not that am I willing to continue to lead this team from an operational standpoint but it was more, do I want to stay involved as a shareholder.

“This means the team becomes me and I become the team long-term and this is the decision I took.

“We are three equal shareholders, we complement each other, and whatever I do in the team I’m staying in my role as a co-owner.

“As long as I enjoy the competition and honesty of the stopwatch, I will continue.

“But I may decide spontaneously that somebody else can carry the baton better, be quicker, more agile, refreshed than me, but not yet,” concluded Wolff.
