Verstappen meanwhile would replicate Russell's feat in 2022, winning both the sprint race and Sunday's grand prix.
And reflecting on the season as a whole, Wolff believes that Brazil stands out as the lowest point for the team in 2023.
Wolff: Brazil weekend was Mercedes low point
“It’s difficult because there have been so many [moments] where we had high expectations and it kind of didn’t come as we’d expected," he told the team's official YouTube channel.
“I believe maybe Brazil [was the low point of the season], because that was such a good race for us in 2022. We dominated the whole weekend [last year], the sprint race and the main race, and then in 2023, the opposite was the case. So maybe that was a bad moment."
Conversely, Wolff declared that securing P2 in the constructors' championship on Sunday in Abu Dhabi as the highlight of the season, as they edged out Ferrari by just three points.
“A good moment was Sunday night in Abu Dhabi," he added.
"I never give big attention to P2 and P3; we want to come P1. But then doing it [finishing P2] and being able to score that was emotionally and morally important for the team. That was a good moment.”
