In news that will surprise absolutely no one, Mercedes Boss Toto Wolff thinks F1 should abandon a big shake-up in the 2017 regulations.
Mercedes have won just about every race for the last three seasons and they’re already 53 points clear in the constructors’ title, so you can’t really blame the guy for wanting things to stay the same.
Wolff believes an exciting start to the season shows exactly why things shouldn’t change for the 2017 season.
“Three great races in a row now,” said the boss of Mercedes Motorsport. “But are we capable of reacting quick enough and acknowledging that, and reverting to regulations which seem to be okay now.
“We are going to change it. Somebody else or us is going to run away with the championship next year because it is in the regulations, and everything starts from the beginning.
“There will be more downforce which you won’t see just on pure lap time, and less overtaking because the wake is much more extreme…”
Of course, there’s also the fact that his cars finish miles clear of the field each race weekend but Wolff insists stability in the rules will instead allow teams to catch Mercedes up.
“We should just leave it alone. Maybe speaking against ourselves because clearly we don’t have the advantage we had last year, but the racing is great and will become even greater if we leave the regulations alone.”
