Speaking to Crash.Net about what he plans to do with his future, Wolff confirmed that Hamilton’s move has no influence on what he will do in the future, and that he shares pride for what Mercedes have built.
“No, it wouldn’t have changed that,” he said. “I think whatever role in the team, or whatever title they give it, I’m going to be there in the future.
“So it was a no-brainer to continue in an executive role, you can call it CEO, managing director, chairman, or team principal.
“It wouldn’t have affected me, because I’m so proud of being part of this Mercedes Formula 1 team, that carries this huge legacy of the star and racing history, and we’re going to write more history in the future, as the Mercedes Formula 1 team,” he continued.
“And that is what I aim to do with everyone in the team, and with everybody in Stuttgart. Therefore, as much as this journey is so special, we have 10 or 20 more years before I’m being overrun by a bus to have more success.”
