Wolff: Niki Lauda has been missed all these years

Toto Wolff admitted that he still misses Niki Lauda – the legendary Austrian passed away in May 2019, and before that he was actively involved in the management of Mercedes-AMG F1. The three-time world champion served as a non-executive director of the team, and at one time it was he who persuaded Lewis Hamilton to move from McLaren to Mercedes, and it was under him that she achieved dominance in Formula 1.

“Niki has been greatly missed all these years, because he always managed to find simple solutions to complex problems, reducing them to what is really important,” said the head of the Mercedes team in an interview with Stats Perform, a British company that specializes in sports analytics. – I have to figure out what he would say and how he would act.

Together, we acted very effectively when we deliberately simplified this or that situation as much as possible, and sometimes this immediately gave results. But there are many different nuances.

Formula 1 is a technical sport, and my role was to then translate our ideas into the design of the car. And then everything is simple: the stopwatch never lies, and the telemetry immediately shows what we are missing and what exactly needs to be fixed.”
