Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says everything points to him continuing his role with the team after his current contract expires.

Recently rumours came out that Toto Wolff might be joining Lawrence Stroll’s new Aston Martin team as CEO after his contract with Mercedes expires at the end of 2020. Wolff has since denied the rumour and now he further distanced himself from any involvement.

“There is no truth to the rumours that I’m going to be CEO of Aston Martin,” Wolff told Austrian broadcaster ORF.

“I’m in a partnership with Daimler in the F1 team and that’s my priority.

“An investment consortium led by Lawrence Stroll has taken over a share [of Aston Martin]. This is a financial investment. But an operational role on my part at Aston Martin is definitely out of the question.

“I am with Mercedes in our eighth year now and I really enjoy working with the people there. At the same time, I’m discussing our future with Ola Källenius, our joint venture and how we want to continue together.

“The platform is working very well for Mercedes as a brand and therefore everything points to us working together for the next few years,” concluded Wolff.
