Formula One News » Toto Wolff: Mercedes unlikely to repeat China victory Posted on 08/04/2013
Mercedes director Toto Wolff believes it is unlikely his team will emulate last years maiden victory at shanghai saying “yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games”.
“One year on from Nico’s win [pictured below], a lot of people will be asking whether this is something our team can repeat in 2013. But like they say, yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games, and that’s definitely true for us.”
“We start again from zero this year and need to work hard to adapt the car to suit the circuit and the tyre compounds we have available, in the conditions that we find on track next weekend. Then we will see where we stand relative to the competition.”
“We have made a solid start to the season in the first two races with Nico and Lewis both performing at a very high and equal level. The development race will be critical this season so we have more new parts planned for China. Our aim has to be to improve on our good start to the season and continue scoring good points in both championships.”
