Disappointing period Mercedes does not harm Wolff: ‘Still best team boss in F1’

Nico Rosberg still sees Toto Wolff as the best team boss currently walking around in the Formula 1 paddock. The Austrian team boss is going through a difficult period, now that Mercedes is not at the front of the field, but the fact that the team is now in a difficult phase does not detract from Wolff’s competence, according to the German. Rosberg does state that his former employer is facing an enormous task, and restructuring will be needed to get back to the top.

In conversation with Motorsport.com, Rosberg feels sorry for the Mercedes staff, who after years of euphoria are now suddenly seeing the other side of the coin, in which the team is having a very difficult time and success is not forthcoming. “It’s incredibly difficult, it’s an incredibly difficult situation for everyone out there. Because they are so used to success and they have written the biggest success story ever in sport, with eight World Cup titles in a row. I think that only happened once in a while,” the former Mercedes driver points out the team’s exceptional performance.

The German sees that the team is having a hard time and is actually only going backwards. ‘And that is why it is now very difficult to accept that suddenly nothing works anymore and that things are not getting better, but worse compared to the end of last year.’ Still, this does not detract from Wolff’s qualities as a team boss, according to Rosberg. “And yes, Toto is ultimately the one responsible and for me he is still the best team manager and team principal here in Formula 1. I have experienced the competence myself and this success in recent years is proof of that.”

Mercedes needs to restructure

Wolff does have a challenge ahead of him, now that Mercedes is no longer running as it has in recent years. “But all success comes to an end at some point, it always has, and now it’s just an incredibly difficult challenge to turn things around again, to learn to take the right restructuring measures, probably also relatively consistently.” , said Rosberg, who thinks it is insurmountable. “You probably should. Incredibly difficult, because restructuring is usually another small step backwards before you take the giant step forward, and that’s what makes it so difficult.’
