Toto Wolff: Boring formula 1 world championship is Mercedes' fault

"I know," says McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl: "Mercedes will be in the coming year will be very strong. Of the head start on the Rest of it is just so big." The formula 1 is mixed in this year: Teams like Racing Point or McLaren fought for the podium, while Teams such as Ferrari falling back.

Only a constant Mercedes perched remains: above all. And because the development for the coming year is abundant limited, many of the "black silver arrows" also 2021 will be the measure of all things and then loose the eighth world Cup title in the series will pick up.

But Mercedes Motorsport boss Toto Wolff wants to know nothing: "If we were to take the season 2020 even as walk, we need to pick up basically only in December in Paris, the Cup had we won one of these world Championships", says the Austrian.

Wolff: No one thinks that it is already running

Mercedes relies more on Understatement, even if the common small talk of their own opportunities among the Fans is already a Running Gag. But it is precisely this attitude that has put the Team in the past few years, so far: "Not a single fiber in us thinks that this world Cup is already over. Something like that can throw you very quickly out of the train," says Wolff.

of Course, there are also voices that Mercedes' dominance is critical for the Sport. As Sebastian Vettel put in the beginning of the 2010s-years of his winning streak, it was the duration of the winner Lewis Hamilton, who described the Situation as bleak and not good for the Sport. Now he is driving from victory to victory - and the competition seems to be more helpless than ever.

don't see Wolff necessarily positive: "On the other hand, the dominance of a single team is, whether it is we, Red Bull or Ferrari, always a bit dull for the world Cup," he says, but stresses: "It is not the fault of the team that has taken the right steps for that a season is predictable."

Brundle: Should the power to recognise

Also Mercedes, it would rather have to fight against Ferrari, Red Bull and other names to fight: "I would like nothing more than a strong competition, so that we will know on Friday, how the race on Sunday starts. But in our Position it is very difficult to change the ranking," said Wolff.

"We have a goal of riding every weekend as well as possible to the best, to earn hopefully a lot of points and to win the world Cup. What else we can do," said the Austrian. This is in the hands of the competition.

Ex-driver Martin Brundle finds that you demonize the dominance of Mercedes, but the performance of the team should recognize: "I've never seen a car that is on the track," marvels he. "We should celebrate the excellence of the team that there is such a part has been designed that fulfils its purpose so well."

"The fact that you are an incredible ten seconds per lap faster than their own dominant cars from the early Hybrid-time six years ago, can only be on the track or behind the Wheel from properly acknowledged," says Brundle.
