The 52-year-old owns a 33 per cent stake in the team, and has recently stated that this makes him more wary of when it may be time to move on from his position.
However, Wolff will now be with the team until at least the end of 2026, meaning he will get the chance to take Mercedes into the new era of Formula 1, with sweeping new regulation changes coming at the start of the 2026 season.
F1 contract performance clauses
Many contracts for both drivers and team principals include performance-based clauses where a team can release personnel early from their contract if they are not performing as expected. This is particularly true for long-term deals.
However, it has been revealed that Wolff's new contract doesn't include any such clauses, meaning that no particular pressure has been put on the Austrian to provide Lewis Hamilton with a championship-winning car by a particular season.
