Toto Wolff: Edging Closer to that First Win of the Season

Toto previews the third and final race of the European triple-header, the Italian Grand Prix at Monza

“We didn’t have the fastest car across the Dutch GP weekend, but the team did a fantastic job putting us in the mix to win the race and we need to ensure we’re in that position on a more regular basis,” said Toto.

“We took some risks in Zandvoort and not all of them worked; we exist to fight for victories and will never shy away from making bold decisions.

“We scored good points in our chase for P2 in the championship and it was fun to be back in the fight. Through everyone’s hard work, we’re edging closer to that first win of the season.

“Emotions were running high on social media after the last race, but hate speech and abuse directed at our Team and our competitors have no place in F1. We compete hard on the track but we always have respect for our rivals.

“This intense triple-header wraps up in Monza, an iconic venue with a rich history and heritage in motorsport, and of course the sea of red Tifosi.

“While Zandvoort suited our car, Monza is likely to be a more challenging weekend owing to the circuit characteristics. But we’re optimistic we’ll be in better shape than other low-downforce tracks like Spa, thanks to our learning since then, and be pushing hard to be fighting for the podium once again.”
