Toto Wolff says at Mercedes they always say: “The days we lose are the days our competitors are going to regret, because we learn the most.”
After eight years of dominance, Mercedes has suffered a significant performance drop in 2022 and 2023.
In the team’s post-season Q&A, team boss Toto Wolff said these difficult periods only make them stronger.
“We learnt a lot [in 2023],” the Austrian said.
“The races and the seasons that are difficult are the ones where you learn the most. And we always say, the days we lose are the days our competitors are going to regret, because we learn the most.
“I think there’s so many lessons that we learned as an organisation, as humans, but also technically that will be beneficial going forward.

“I wouldn’t be able to pick one out though because there’s so many things that we have looked at that will help us progress over the next year.
“It’s a constant learning process and next year, and in the years to come, there will be situations where we say: ‘Well, we didn’t spot that.’
“That was also true during the last 10 years where we won eight championships. You just got to constantly learn and develop.
“That’s a mindset we’ve always had,” Wolff concluded.
