Wolff hopeful after disappointing start to the season: 'Another chance in Australia to show what we can do'

After a disappointing start to the season, Toto Wolff wants to do everything he can in Australia to achieve the best possible result. Because the differences between the teams are small, according to the 52-year-old Mercedes team boss, the German team must utilize the full potential of the W15 in Melbourne next weekend.

The first races of 2024 did not deliver the results that Mercedes had so fervently hoped for. Still, according to Wolff, there is sufficient potential in the W15. “We started every weekend strongly, but in the end we could not live up to expectations,” says the Austrian in Mercedes’ preview of the Australian race weekend.

Wolff hopes for improvement in Melbourne, but everything must go smoothly. “The chasing teams are extremely close, which means that not much has to go wrong to lose three or four places on the grid,” says the 52-year-old, who also highlights the positive side of the small differences. ‘It also means that you don’t have to find much to move forward three or four positions. It is crucial every weekend to fully utilize the car’s potential. Australia gives us another chance to show what we can do,” said a hopeful Wolff.

Attention also to other classes

In addition to the achievements of Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and George Russell, Wolff will also watch the F1 Academy and Formula 2 with great interest. ‘Just like in Jeddah, there is another exciting supporting program in the F1 Academy and Formula 2. Melbourne. The latter category is also in the program here in Australia and we look forward to seeing how Kimi fares,” Wolff refers to Mercedes junior Andrea Kimi Antonelli. ‘As a motorsport fan, I also hope to catch a glimpse of the Australian Supercars Championship. The V8 engines are quite noisy and it is always a great part of the Albert Park weekend,” said Wolff.
