Toto Wolff has been brought in as a mediator in the Racing Point case. The Mercedes team boss is doing everything in his power to ensure that the case against the copycat behaviour of the British racing team does not end with the FIA.
“I don’t think anyone will benefit if this ends with the International Court of Appeal. The whole process will then take another month or two, involving lawyers,” Wolff says to Motorsport Week. According to the Austrian, this is an outcome no one is looking for.
“That’s why everyone tries to be pragmatic,” continues the Mercedes top man. “I was asked to mediate between the two groups (Racing Point and its opponents, ed.) and I responded to that request.”
That’s how Wolff started talking to Racing Point’s opponents. These include Renault, McLaren, and also Ferrari has recently joined this group. Wolff: “They are all very stubborn, but I think we have made some progress.”
In the next 48 hours, we have to come to a conclusion that shows whether the protest continues, or whether everyone thinks it’s not worth dragging the case to the FIA. Racing Point has already received its punishment,” reports Wolff.
“No protest has been made about Mercedes. We haven’t done anything wrong. I also firmly believe that Racing Point hasn’t done anything wrong,” he concludes.
