“For me, it’s Super Mario Kart with real drivers, but it’s absolutely valid to give that a chance.”
After the opening three races, Mercedes are currently second in the FE championship behind BMW, and Wolff is impressed with how Stoffel Vandoorne and Nyck de Vries have performed for the Silver Arrows so far.
“Nyck has already contributed a great deal to the team’s performance,” the Austrian continued.
“He’s very mature and the way he’s – as a personality and as a racing driver – been able to slot into the team with Stoffel is really nice to see.
“We have set our ambitions or our expectations on a realistic target, which we have overachieved and both of the drivers contributed to this happening.”
