Video: Why Toto Wolff watches F1 race from Mercedes garage

Toto Wolff has become synonymous with Mercedes, having led the team to unmatched success in recent years. However he always watches on from the garage rather than the pit wall. Why is that?

Formula 1 races have become increasingly interactive and vibrant, with cameras giving fans access to amazing on-board angles along with in-depth looks inside team garages.

When it comes to the latter, nobody stands out like Toto Wolff. Whether the Austrian is angrily hitting a table with his fist, or smiling after seeing his team take home another victory, you are likely to catch a glimpse of him in some form when the lights go green.

However while many F1 teams decide on strategy from the pit wall, Wolff is always seated behind his screen in the Mercedes pit box.

Find out why Wolff chooses to sit in the garage rather than the pit wall during the race in the video below. You can also watch several Mercedes team members discuss their roles in the garage.
