Lewis Hamilton’s long term ally who worked with F1 legend at McLaren leaves Mercedes in shock exitMercedes team principal Toto Wolff said Elliott’s exit was his own decision

MERCEDES chief technical officer Mike Elliott has announced his resignation with immediate effect. Elliott, 49, has left the team after 11 years in wake of the eight-time champions’ failure to win a race this season. Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said Elliott’s exit was his own decision. He said: “It has been one of the great privileges of my career to be part of this Mercedes team. Elliott’s promotion to technical director in July 2021 – in preparation for the 2022 season, for which F1 introduced its biggest regulation changes for 40 years – was not a success. Mercedes won only one race in 2022, with George Russell in Brazil, and have failed to repeat that success this year.
