Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport, Toto Wolff was pleased by the one-two finish in Hungary and is looking to show Mercedes-Benz a strong race in front of the bosses of the German manufacturer.
“To get such a result in Hungary, which is not a track that has traditionally suited us, shows how far we have progressed. That is the most satisfying outcome and a big positive for the rest of the season”.
In front of Mercedes bosses, Toto Wolff wants the team to represent the team in a good light and to beat their closest rivals Red Bull and Ferrari.
“It’s no secret that this is a big weekend for us. We are just a small part of a large global organisation and we take great pride in representing the three-pointed star out on track. I’m sure our rivals would take great pleasure in beating us on our home turf, so the pressure is on”.
The home race for Mercedes is vital for the rest of the season with Mercedes-Benz watching the relationship between the drivers which has been frosty in recent races.
Wolff praised the performance of the two drivers and how they raced in the last race in Hungary, “We are in a strong position as we move past the halfway point, with two drivers performing at a high level and a competitive combination of chassis and engine underneath them. Their battle shows no signs of dropping in intensity, and we can expect plenty of entertainment as the races and points count down”.
