Head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff said that in connection with a fundamental change of the technical regulations in 2017, the current Champions should be aware of any of its competitors.
“Silver arrows” dominated the Formula 1 for the last three years, winning 51 of the race and leaving no chance rivals in the championship.
In spite of completely new rules in terms of aerodynamics, the Mercedes remains the main favorite of the upcoming season. But Wolff believes that the team should not relax.
“By joining Mercedes four years ago, I was very worried about whether we will be able to win races and Championships in the near future, – said wolf in an interview with BBC 5 live Sport. – We did it, so now the nervousness a little less. But at the same time, therein lies the danger – you are too relax. So what changes in the technical regulations occurred on time. We are very motivated and want to do it right.
You can’t take anything for granted. Who could have imagined in 2009 that Ross Brawn will find a solution as a double diffuser?
I think the second test session in Barcelona we will understand if you found someone innovations that are not noticed by others.
In the transition to the new regulations need to be afraid of everyone. Again, in 2009, no one expected to see BrawnGP among the main contenders for the title. Therefore, we believe that everyone has a chance”.
