Head of Mercedes concerned with politics Liberty

Head of Mercedes Toto Wolff admitted that he did not like how Liberty works with Formula 1.Toto Wolff "We had to give them time to look at the peculiarities of the championship. But I can already tell that Mercedes and other big teams have issues that greatly concern us.First, they restructured the Formula-1, hiring a number of specialists for the 70 million, which means less revenue for the teams. We still don't know what amount will be divided between us in 2018.Every time we speak with them, I feel they want to introduce there a system of NASCAR, where all the teams are the same, so that everyone can win. But it's the opposite of Formula-1.In our competition, we honor the best cars, the best engineers and the best pilots. And that's what Ross Brawn should know because he was part of this Formula-1.Bernie Ecclestone came up with something and turned it into something gorgeous for 50 years. And now we are responsible for these achievements. We have different opinions on how to do it, but we will continue the talks".

They want to spend what you can afford, and I always say the same thing. If people can't spend, they need to leave or fight for their own goals. If there are only three or four teams capable of competing at the top, then it should be. All the teams who say they can't afford it, should not even participate in the championship or should just silently accept the rules".
