Toto Wolff is blunt about Max Verstappen’s superiority

With the Austrian GP just days away, Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff was blunt about the progress made by the Brackley-based stable and the distance from Red Bull. “We are putting in a major upgrade ahead of Silverstone. We see a good increase in performance in the wind tunnel and we are understanding better what the car needs to be fast, as well as what the ideal set-up needs to be,” the Austrian manager began at the microphones of “Sky Sport Deutschland.”

Next, Toto Wolff addressed the distance of his own car from Red Bull: “In general, the steps are getting bigger and bigger. I think we are making good progress, but I think Max’s lead is still too big to think we can put pressure on him. In any case, we can solve the problem that is a mix between aerodynamics and the mechanical concept on which the car was based.”
