Mercedes will be ‘no walkover’ in F1 prize money debate – Wolff | 2018 F1 season

Mercedes will not be a “walkover” in its discussions with Liberty Media over future changes to Formula 1’s prize money, team principal Toto Wolff has said.
While all teams can be eligible for F1’s ‘column 1’ and ‘column 2’ prize money payments, Mercedes is one of five which qualifies for special bonuses on top of that.
But Wolff says Mercedes will strive to protect their bonus.
“When Mercedes decided to join Formula 1 we were not competitive and we didn’t have any privileges,” Toto Wolff said.
Wolff praised the approach F1 CEO Chase Carey has taken.
