“Best man in best Machine Wins” Toto Wolff Senses Magnificent Contribution of High Tech Sponsors on Mercedes Gears

Toto Wolff, the Mercedes AMG F1 Team Principal claims the expenses for Valtteri Bottas’s damaged car will affect the saved funds from the cost cap for development projects in 2021.

Toto Wolff, the Mercedes AMG F1 team boss, indicated that the “best man in best machine” can win the Championship any day. The best man drive the best machine very well and vice versa.

Mercedes AMG F1 is the most advanced team with the best driver, on Formula One circuit right now. Only, Red Bull Racing comes in real close with their advancement and technology along with Verstappen.

The Formula One pundits and fans believed Mercedes’s W12 is the most advanced car on the track and is miles ahead of its competitor. However, the recently concluded Bahrain Grand Prix proved it otherwise. Red Bull moved in very close, thanks to the new aerodynamics rule by Formula One.

The high rake system of Red Bull cars has fared better than the Silver Arrows’ low rake cars. Despite all these adjustments, Wolff conveyed in an interview, “I think foremost F1 stands for its historic values and this is still very much high tech and is best man in best machine wins.”

The 49-year-old boss further asserted, “The speed of delivery is something that has become attractive for tech sponsors too, and on the other side there is the real case that the technology of high tech companies can accelerate our own performance. So it’s moved beyond the sticker on the car to a really credible joint mission.”

Tech sponsorships are important to make the best car, feels Toto Wolff

Adding on, with high-tech cars, come the high valued sponsorships. The Formula One team lately has started taking in huge numbers of global sponsors, and most of them are very reputed. Two such examples are TeamViewer (Specialists in Augmented Reality) merged with Mercedes and Oracle, a partner to Red Bull.
