From childhood tragedy to marrying racing beauty, F1 chief Toto Wolff’s incredible rise to fame and £300m fortune

MERCEDES-AMG Petronas team principal Toto Wolff is one race away from toasting another F1 world championship. Wolf was kicked out of school because his family couldn’t afford the fees. It got worse for Toto when she couldn’t afford school fees and he was removed from private school. But when he was 12 and his sister was nine, they were removed from the school. “We were taken out of class because the school fee wasn’t paid,” he said. So, before the rally Wolff bought a large number of candles to sell to demonstrators. In 1992, Wolff competed in the Austrian Formula Ford Championship, driving in Austrian and German Formula Ford in 1993 and 1994.
