At the Hungarian Grand Prix Qualifying, George Russell brought Mercedes its first pole position of the 2022 season.
After this spectacular results, Sky Sports F1 asked team boss Toto Wolff if Mercedes is still in the title fight.
“It’s so difficult to say, we [have] a very big points gap behind Max, like everybody else,” the Austrian said.
“But then you can see how it goes today when they are out of the fight at the front. We will never give up.
“We doubt all the time. We oscillate between depression and exuberance. That’s what makes the sport so tough, and on the other side, so exciting.
“I wouldn’t discount anything if we are able to win tomorrow.”

And as for a win tomorrow, Wolff believes it is possible.
“We were always off the pace on a single lap, now we are on pole. Let’s see what we can do with that tomorrow in the race.
“If we are able to have the pace there I believe that we are part of the fun and games at the front again.
“I think if we can maintain the position at the first and coming out of the first lap, [if] the driver has a solid race, some good stops, why not?
“We can win this,” Wolff concluded.
