Head of Mercedes Toto Wolff does not agree with the opinion of a non-Executive Director of the “Silver arrows” of Niki Lauda on the invitation Sebastian Vettel in the team for the season 2018.
Before Lauda said that at least until such options are considered, however, his compatriot and colleague adheres to a slightly different point of view.
“In 2018 before we can open up interesting options, but right now we don’t want to spend time on it and intend to focus on helping Valtteri realize my speed – said wolf in an interview with Stuttgarter Zeitung. Personally, I have a good relationship with Vettel. I think he would fit well in our team.
However, it is now fully committed to his current employer. When Nico Rosberg has announced his retirement, Sebastian was the one who wasn’t interested in that vacant place in our team. The only thing he said, “Oh, this is unexpected”. He fully focused on Ferrari.
Let’s see what the future will bring, but of course it would be a huge omission is the lack of Sebastian in the list.
Four-time world champion, in addition, also German, in the Mercedes – that sounds good. But still I prefer the scenario in which we will succeed with Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas”.
