Wolff claims bias against Mercedes

The Mercedes boss has helped lead the team into an era of unparalleled success. However, he claims that some within F1 do have an inherent bias against the Brackley team, due to their recent domination.

Toto Wolff has claimed that he sees some biases against Mercedes within F1, amid a series of regulation changes that have seemingly helped the Brackey team's main rivals.

The Austrian boss has been at the team since 2013, but recent rule changes, including the banning of qualifying party modes, as well as the 2021 reduction in rear downforce, have both conspired to hurt Mercedes - whilst bolstering the opposition.

“There are areas where I see bias against Mercedes,” Wolff told The Race.

“And here in the group we discuss, is it a pure bias that somebody wants to just penalise us in a way which sometimes is triggered by other teams, or is this something that is really important for the sport?

“We have even accepted some of the biases, because we knew about them. We took the conscious decision to accept it. But then there are clear, obvious actions against the team with the only aim to hurt us. And I will be always fighting this.”

However, the 49-year-old insists that he doesn't want advantageous rule changes either. On the contrary, Wolff believes that the ability to compete without artificial interference is critical.

“We don’t ask anybody to be biased to Mercedes, just to do the best for the sport because we all benefit from a good sport. We share the revenues and the better the show is the better the sport," Wolff concludes.

“That’s why, in a way, I take it personally because I want to protect the organisation. But on the other side, the case studies of individuals that are around the paddock, it’s just very interesting for me to see that."
