Formula 1: Wolff Team with Mercedes now at the quintuplet club


Sao Paulo (APA / Reuters) – Mercedes has met his next mission in the World Formula 1 Championship. After the driver's title for Lewis Hamilton, Silver Arrows won on Sunday in Sao Paulo the Builders' Championship for the fifth time in the room. Toto Wolff, the head of team, had a call from the leader of the FIA, Jean Todt, who made it particularly proud of him.

"He said he was honored to welcome me to the Pumfold Club, hearing that is incredible. I'm offensive," said the Vienna after the phone call with the President of the International Automobile Federation (FIA ). Under the direction of Todt Ferrari from 1999 to 2004, even six times in a row, the producers' championship and with the record man Michael Schumacher 2000-2004 also won five times the title of the first-class driver in terms of sports motor.

Wolff was pleased that his team had set the two titles before the end of the season on November 25 in Abu Dhabi. "That's the hardest year and that's why the relief we've got in our team has never been so great. That was the hardest battle so far with Ferrari," the 46th anniversary confirmed. "We have had such a terrible race today with the perfect final result – Lewis as the winner and us as the winner of the producers' championship."

He did not run as he wanted for Mercedes, according to Wolff because of "a huge machine problem". So the engineers had to turn the Hamilton engine into force to avoid the overheating engine. When Hamilton won the race, he was not stopped. The Mercedes team was so wild, ultimately, not just a British Champ, but a barrier was also blocked.

Since the launch of the V6 turbo hybrid machines in 2014, Starfleet has won all the world championship titles. More than half of all races in this period – 50 out of 99 – ended in a victory to Hamilton. "The fact that we have won the two consecutive consecutive championships would not have happened to us even in our wild dreams six years ago," said Wolff.

But now Mercedes has done something with him, which succeeded to just one team only. "To coincide with the Ferrari record that was considered unstable, it's something that I am grateful and that makes me happy," says Wolff. "I still remember how I admire these Ferrari records over these years with Jean and Michael and all other people who contributed to him before I went to Formula One."
