Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas have one more rival to fear, except for the Ferrari and Red Bull drivers. Their boss, Toto Wolff, is quite good behind the steering wheel. Former pro driver, Wolff tested a series production car, telling the reporter he has never though tested a Formula 1 vehicle.

The Mercedes-AMG Motorsport chief, Toto Wolff, drove the Mercedes-AMG 63 S 4MATIC+ around the racetrack, remembering the last time he competed as a pro driver. It was exactly a decade ago.

The F1W09 EQ Power Plus racing car hasn’t yet reached its top performance level, even though Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS is at the top of the Constructors’ ranking, with a tiny 1-point lead over rival Ferrari. Fierce behind the steering wheel on the racetrack, a Switzerland resident, Wolff claims to be following the strict regulations of the Swiss traffic.

Toto speaks of eliminating weaknesses, making the new car less of the diva that it was last season.  The head of the Mercedes Motorsport division answered the questions while speeding on the racetrack in a Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4MATIC+.
