Mercedes F1 Boss Wolff To Miss Brazil Grand Prix. This marks his first premier Formula 1 race he’s missed since the hybrid era began. But what does this mean for Mercedes AMG F1?
Mercedes F1 Boss Wolff To Miss Brazil Grand Prix should have the grid worried. Many are talking about this painting it as a well deserved holiday. Considering he’s been able to accomplish something not many in sports history can relate to and dominate his sport taking a record sixth-straight double championship, it’s easy to jump to that. But consider how much Team Boss can do from the home factory. Especially in the dog days of the Formula 1 season. With only The Brazilian Grand Prix and The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix left, there’s much to do ahead of the 2020 F1 season.
Wolff recently opened up about missing the late stage grand prix and had this to say:
Mercedes Team Boss Toto Wolff On His Absence This Weekend In Brazil
We have two races to go in the 2019 season and we want to end this season on a high. It [speaking of Interlagos] is a very short track which makes qualifying particularly challenging as the margins are very small. We have generally not had the fastest car on Saturdays since the summer break, but we were able to take pole in Austin and will try to fight for a front-row start again at Sao Paulo.
It’s safe to say that’s not code for “holiday”. Mercedes and Wolff are still hungry to get another win ahead of the 2021 Formula 1 regulation changes. Despite confirming their team championship a handful races ago and Mercedes deflating Ferrari’s runaway from Red Bull in the Constructors Championship, the team keep pressing on as they know they have work yet to do. Charles Leclerc will accept a Brazil GP grid penalty and return to his newer spec model Power Unit after suffering some failure in FP3 at United States Grand Prix. And surely Max Verstappen will be poised to close the gap on Leclerc’s 3rd place form in the Drivers Championship.
