Mercedes chief Toto Wolff says he studied Manchester United to understand why ‘great teams’ decline, as the Austrian plots a route back to the Formula One summit after a slow start to the season

Mercedes chief Toto Wolff claims he studied Manchester United to understand why ‘great teams’ are not able to sustain their success. In an interview with the Financial Times, Wolff said: ‘I studied why great teams were not able to repeat great title [runs],’ before citing United’s spell under Ferguson. The 37-year-old’s struggles this season have triggered suggestions that Mercedes may look to move him on at the end of the year, but Wolff, via the Independent, has branded the claims ‘complete bull****’. Hamilton’s current deal with Mercedes runs to the end of 2023, but there have been suggestions he could leave the current constructors champions before then.
