EXCLUSIVE: Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff ‘lost his s***’ at a meeting of team principals in Montreal claiming his fellow principals are ganging up on him over bouncing problems

Toto Wolff ‘lost his s***’ at a meeting of team principals here in Montreal yesterday, according to sources. One insider said the Mercedes boss launched into a ‘wide-eyed rant’ because he thinks his rivals are ganging up on him over the bouncing problems his team are experiencing with their car. Wolff is said to have accused the other team bosses of deliberately perpetuating a safety issue by refusing to alter the regulations introduced this year, which have led to the Mercedes cars ‘porpoising’ – the phenomenon of a car bouncing hard on its suspension. I understand his rivals were sceptical about the circumstances surrounding an additional ‘floor-stay’ Mercedes were running on their cars in practice. Rivals privately wonder whether Mercedes were tipped off by the FIA in advance. Mercedes removed the stay before qualifying, claiming it did not help them.
