Head of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff commented on the early conquest of the German team of the Cup of designers.
Lewis Hamilton celebrated the win at the U.S. Grand Prix, while Valtteri Bottas finished fifth. That was enough for the early championship Mercedes in the team competition.
“I am happy – said Toto in comments to Sky Sports. – The whole gang in Brackley and Brixworth did a fantastic job. They sacrificed themselves 24/7.
They all made our car fast and reliable, and Lewis brought their work into great results.
Specific secret to our success there. Throughout all these years we were as competitive as possible. This is possible with the right attitude, the necessary resources to achieve the goal and the right approach.
This success also made a huge contribution paddy [Lowe] and Ross [brown], who was our technical Directors in the past.”
Non-Executive Director of Mercedes Niki Lauda added: “Thanks to all at Brackley and Brixworth. We have achieved this success together. Incredible result. I’m happy.
If we talk about strategy in the race, we found ourselves in a precarious position: to choose the tactics of one or two pit-stop.
But Lewis was in control. Perhaps Bottas had to use a different strategy, but it doesn’t matter. For us this is a fantastic result.”
