Wolff discusses challenges facing Mercedes at Saudi GP

Toto Wolff discussed the upcoming Saudi GP, and said that it was a clean sheet for everyone involved.

F1 will race in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the first time ever. It will be held in Jeddah, and a is a fresh track for drivers to take to.

Teams have no prior data regarding the track, nor do they know what to expect. It is a new experience like the Qatar GP, and we may see anything from a boring finish to some absolute madness.

This is the penultimate race of the season before F1 heads to Abu Dhabi to complete the traditional season finale in the United Arab Emirates.

Wolff discussed the Saudi GP, and expressed his interest and excitement to see the event unfold.

As quoted by grandprix247.com, the Mercedes team principal said, “Jeddah is another completely new challenge, an all-new track to get to grips with.

“And a lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to ensure we hit the ground running on Friday, because getting as much information as we can during those initial sessions will be vital.

“It’s a fast street circuit with long flat-out sections and several high-speed corners lined by barriers, meaning it’ll be high risk and reward.

“We’re more motivated than ever and we expect to be in the hunt, so we are all looking forward to the debut grand prix in Saudi Arabia.”


The Austrian took the opportunity to pay tribute to the late Sir Frank Williams, who passed away peacefully a few days ago. He has worked with him before, and called on his team to put in a performance for the departed legend.

“Just a few days ago, we lost Sir Frank Williams,” he continued.

“He will be in all our thoughts this weekend and we’ll try our best to deliver a performance that’s worthy of his racing spirit.”
