In a lighthearted interview conducted on his birthday, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff described how it feels turning 50 years old.

On January 12 2021 Toto Wolff turned 50. Kronen Zeitung asked him how it feels?

“The purest nightmare,” Toto joked.

“At 50 you are officially an adult, definitely over the middle. That bothered me. I would have to get more serious and wiser.

“So I do my own time calculation, try to find a way to avoid the ‘5’, and just celebrate ‘49 plus 1’ with my wife.”

Asked to look back on the last 50 years of his life, Wolff kept it lighthearted.

“There were many highlights, but also many lows. But I live in the moment. Thanks to my wife, my children, and my whole life situation, I am completely happy.

“Except that I’m now ‘49 plus 1’,” the Austrian concluded.
