Toto Wolff has delivered a honest message to Mercedes fans following a challenging start to the season for the team.

The Silver Arrows currently sit third in the Constructors' Championship, having struggled to match the pace of Red Bull and Aston Martin after experiencing issues with their W14 car.

As such, Wolff has taken the move of addressing the squad's fanbase directly to thank them for their support, and suggested that the difficulties have added to the excitement of the season.

"I just wanted to tell you that we are really grateful for how you have supported us this season so far," Wolff said in a video message shared by Mercedes.

"It's not been easy, but if it was, it wouldn't be as exciting, and it wouldn't be Formula 1 – the pinnacle of motor racing."

Wolff 'excited' for what lies ahead

Wolff admits that plenty of work is going on at Mercedes' factories as they hope to improve their prospects going forwards, and the team boss is looking forward to what lies ahead.

"Everyone here at the factories has been super busy and flat out over the last few weeks preparing to return to the track," he explained.

"We're excited for that and to have all of you cheering for us as we race for our next podium, win or championship."

With a four-week break occurring in the calendar due to the cancellation of the Chinese Grand Prix, F1 will return for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix on the weekend of 28-30 April.
