Mercedes needs new rules for motivation boost says Wolff

Mercedes is fully motivated to race its utter domination of the ‘power unit’ era since 2014 into the all-new regulatory period that begins in 2022. Team boss and co-owner Toto Wolff admitted that sky-high motivation is always difficult for a team that is as successful as Mercedes has been. “We want to prove that we cannot be stopped by these changes either,” Wolff said. Indeed, Formula 1 made key changes to the aerodynamic rules for 2021, and the ‘low rake’ teams headed by Mercedes were the most affected. “It is not good for the sport when one team or one driver dominates the sport for years. “For this year there was another change, with the aim of changing the order. According to Wolff, the change cost Mercedes “about five or even more tenths of a second per lap”.
