Toto Wolff sees no arena in the Mercedes dominance Zoom Obtain

15 of 21 Mercedes won races a year 2019 in order to ultimately win the crew and driver championship for the sixth time in a row. Both the fans and interested manufacturers who are considering entering Formula 1 criticize the dominance of the German team. Wolff believes, however, that there are enough stories outside of the World Championship that make Formula 1 interesting.

“Mercedes won the sixth title, but is that why fewer people are watching? In my opinion, there are still always a lot of movement and unpredictable developments, “says Wolff. “A weekend ago it was never clear whether Ferrari or Purple Bull would go to pole. It was also never clear whether Max Verstappen might win a race.”

Another point legit Formula 1 is Conflict of the generations, i.e. Sebastian Vettel against Charles Leclerc and Verstappen against world champion Lewis Hamilton. Wolff believes that this storyline will cast a spell over many viewers: “It's great that the younger fan base is growing,” said the Mercedes team boss. “Overall, we are on the right track.”

A look at the numbers is worthwhile: Formula 1 speaks of 1.9 billion viewers a year 2019, became a new record since the season 2012. In addition, the interactions on social media and the digital channels of the premier class have been significantly increased.

We look in this video the Formula 1 teams, which will have to increase significantly in the coming season 2020 to meet their own requirements More Formula 1 movies

Pay-TV doesn't seem to be a hurdle either, like Wolff explains: “While linear television is slowly shrinking, this is not the case for Formula 1. It is one of the sports whose audience is growing, even though some countries have pulled Formula 1 behind a paywall. In the year 2019 there were almost two billion viewers, of which 419 million Abnormal Viewers. “

According to Wolff, Formula 1 is the fastest growing sport on social media. “Even the American leagues can't keep up,” he says. “So we're on the right track. Liberty Media did a good job when Formula 1 opened up to social media. It wasn't the tumble before. Compared to other sports, the numbers are huge.”

“You have a few sensible people there, but it took a while to realize,” says Brawn. “People think they made a big mistake parting with Honda. But funnily enough, I think they used the snappy to realize they needed to be used by the crew.”

“You put the blame on Honda all the time and now you realized that it wasn't true,” said Brawn, the team boss of Honda battle. “By getting rid of Honda and getting a bar, they became aware that they had to do something with the crew.”

Comparison with the same engine battle important

McLaren had failed in Formula 1 on the Honda engine and claimed that a better engine could keep up with the top teams. But when you had the same engine as Renault in the car, you even slouch behind the factory team before you 2019.

“I don't know how they would have come to this conclusion if they hadn't installed another engine in the rear, that other groups have driven, “said Brawn. “So they realized that they had to make big changes. And I think they did it. They took a very positive step.”

All midfield groups have high hopes 2021 when the field is mixed again. However, the top teams 2020 still have the big plus that the budget limit does not work and they can do the development again with great financial effort – that could of course harm the smaller groups.

Became once will 2021?

“You are very economically challenged. I know that is part of the complication,” says Brawn. “There are a few frustrated groups because they hoped that the budget ceiling would be lower. But we had to set a height that would also be easily accessible by the top teams. There will still be a dramatic change in the top teams used to be their structure concerns. “

Brawn is therefore optimistic that the field will adjust: “In this process we will put the midfield teams on a more level footing with the top teams. There is therefore a brighter future for these midfield teams, “he emphasizes.

” De Your new commercial deal is much fairer. The prize money will be distributed much more fairly across all groups. Some groups will therefore feel a significant increase in their prize money. This will improve their financial condition. “

Brawn hopes for Williams turnaround

This is likely to be good news for Williams, who has been stuck with the financial abyss for years and has slipped to the last place in the constructors' championship a worry. Williams was going through some really difficult years now. You can't go on like this, “he says.

The previously planned events are still to be carried out; However, these are primarily national events and song days and not two or four-wheel races of international relevance.

Specifically, the responsible Yamuna Parkway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA ) In a first step, the VIP access to the route is officially blocked. At the same time, similar to an insolvency proceeding, an auction of all BIC assets is being prepared.

According to YEIDA, the Jaypee Infratech company behind the line is in arrears with its creditors and can no longer service current credit contracts. Jaypee denies this, so has announced an appeal process and claims that 90 percent of all due bills have been properly paid.

From 2011 to 2013 there was a Huge Prix of India three times. The winner was Sebastian Vettel three times on Red Bull. At the last race so far in the year 2013 the German won his fourth and last World Cup title early.

At the dwell, the end result is in actuality valid. I’m happy.

Q:

What changed into that closing stage devour?

Refined. I changed into half of the mindset to search out a valid rhythm and then take into yarn some [Power Stage] aspects, however I gave that up straight away. To rob aspects would imply taking some probability.
