A couple of months ago, Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff, bought a stake in the British car manufacturer, Aston Martin.
The decision to invest in a company that would have its own F1 team in 2021, sparked rumors of Wolff leaving Mercedes for Aston Martin next season.
However, the Mercedes boss continues to insist that his investment isn’t a hint towards his defection to the British powerhouse.
Chances are that Toto Wolff is working on his last season at Mercedes. The successful team boss hinted at the end of his term as head of the team several times in recent months. Eddie Jordan thinks his future could be with the new Aston Martin team.
It’s no secret that Wolff may stop being team boss after the current season. The Austrian has repeatedly hinted that he is looking for new challenges, but he also wants to give others the chance. This is how Jordan thinks there will be a new team boss, the former team boss told.
“Wolff to Aston Martin? It could be. What he has achieved so far is truly magnificent. He won everything there was to win, but there’s a time of coming and going. I think it’s time to stop. He would do well to opt for something different at this point,” said the Brit.
Last week Jordan indicated in the Daily Mail that Mercedes will most likely be taken over by INEOS, the current main sponsor. Jordan remains behind ‘his’ rumour and emphasizes that Wolff has a stronger motive to leave as a result of this development. “I’m sure INEOS will buy the team,” he adds confidently.
