Wolff explains why his renovation is so much more complex than Jürgen Klopp’s
Niki Lauda’s actions make negotiations more difficult
The renewal of Toto Wolff, the person who has led the success of Mercedes in the last six years, should not be a headache. However, the Austrian explains the complexity of the matter, although he assures that the negotiations are on the right track.
Toto Wolff ends his contract with Mercedes later this year. The Austrian negotiates its continuity, which has been doubted in recent months. Her friendship with Lawrence Stroll suggested that perhaps she could support the businessman in the Aston Martin adventure.
It is the end of July and it is not yet known if Wolff will continue in Mercedes in 2021. The topic brings fans head-on, wondering why it is not clear for both parties to maintain one of the pillars of success in recent years . The delay has caused quarreling rumors between Toto and Daimler, which Wolff has been forced to deny.
Logic suggests that a contract like Wolff’s with Mercedes would have to be renewed easily. However, Toto denies that it is as easy as the continuity of the also successful Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp, who last year made sure to remain in command of the team until 2024, after his team won the Premier League.
Wolff explains that much more aspects must be taken into account when negotiating the contract with Mercedes, such as the actions of the late Niki Lauda, who owned 10% of the Mercedes GP.
“I don’t think Liverpool question Jürgen Klopp or Daimler question me. We have a relatively complex structure and complex contracts. This is more than a simple employment contract as in the case of Klopp, not wanting to underestimate it. There is also the question of what happens to the actions of Niki Lauda, ”Wolff said in remarks for the German publication Auto Motor und Sport.
Despite the complexity of the issue, he hopes to reach an agreement by the end of the year. “We have spoken for a long time, but we are on the right track. One thing is certain: we must have a solution at the latest by the end of the year,” said Wolff to finish.
