Wolff believes pros outweigh cons of Formula 1 triple headers

The current Formula 1 calendar will see teams take part in three triple headers, and Mercedes boss Toto Wolff believes it will benefit the sport.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff believes the three triple headers planned for the upcoming Formula 1 season are beneficial to the sport, though he admits it will be exhausting.

The Formula 1 calendar has already undergone changes due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with the Australian Grand Prix moved from its traditional running as the season-opener.

F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali revealed the series will be flexible when it comes to further changes, but Wolff believes that the current schedule, which will see teams participate in three triple headers, is something the sport needs given that more races equals more revenue.

"I think the teams are the beneficiaries of the growing sales and growing income," Wolff told Motorsport-Total. "The teams are still getting a huge chunk of income and in that regard, we all need to support growth.

"I think a triple header in Asia means we'll be away from home for more than three weeks, and that's certainly not great. Remember that the hardest working people are the ones who open the garages - and dismantle."

Wolff admits he doesn't know how long the format would be sustainable, but he did offer a solution that may make things easier on team members.

"You have to ask yourself how long this is sustainable and whether you can introduce a different system by having a second crew that can take on these toughest tasks," Wolff concluded.
