Mercedes looking to drop engine customer says Wolff

Mercedes is looking to shed a Formula 1 engine customer, boss Toto Wolff has revealed. But Wolff told the Financial Times that the new financial limits in F1 mean Mercedes is not making “substantial amounts” from selling engines to smaller teams. The Austrian indicated that he is happy to keep two of Mercedes’ three engine customers. “I’d rather have six (cars), push the development further down the line and then make two engines less, because you need to produce two less plus two spares for every team,” said Wolff. He did not say which of Mercedes’ current customer teams would be kept or dropped, but all three have been linked with Volkswagen’s new F1 forays for 2026.
