Nico Rosberg has suggested that he regrets occasions where he may have criticised former boss Toto Wolff since taking on the role of team boss himself.
The 2016 F1 World Champion is currently running his own squad in the Extreme E series and has enjoyed success so far, with Rosberg X Racing leading the championship after winning the first two events of the season.
Rosberg has been trying not to get too involved, despite being a hands-on owner, and admits that he is now understanding the challenges of the team leader role.
"I like to be involved and support where I can," Rosberg told Autosport.com. "Of course, I have such a vast experience.
"I always have to be careful that I don't intervene too much. There's a fine line. But also, it's a new challenge for me because I've never been on this opposite side of the road.
"Now I look back and when I used to criticise Toto, now I'm like, 'Oh, s**t, OK , maybe I shouldn't criticise him'. It's actually quite difficult to be in that role.
"Also, in the way you interact with the drivers. It's hard to understand what the path is to be most supportive. But at the same time, it's very interesting."
Wolff was Rosberg's boss during his time with Mercedes, where the German famously enjoyed a tense rivalry with teammate Lewis Hamilton.
Rosberg has been trying to use the experience that he gained from his Formula 1 career in his latest venture.
"It's so difficult because nobody understands the cars properly because you don't test them," Rosberg explained of the Extreme E vehicles.
"You have to guess and figure things out. As a team, we're really trying to bring some Formula 1 approach to Extreme E. That's really helping us as a team to perform."
In the most recent event of the series - the Ocean X Prix held in Senegal - Rosberg's outfit secured victory following a collision with the X44 car, a team incidentally owned by his former rival Hamilton.
