Toto Wolff anticipates a “intense” finish to the eventful 2021 Formula One season at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Mercedes’ Toto Wolff has explained how the team will approach the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which will be a “all or nothing” weekend.
The race at the Yas Marina Circuit will determine both the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships, with Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen tied on points and Mercedes leading Red Bull by 28 points.
Despite the fact that Wolff acknowledges that the event will be “intense,” he feels that the team will do their best to keep focused on the task at hand.
“The final race will be intense, but it’s important to not get distracted, to just keep our heads down, our feet on the ground and bring the performance that we had last time out [in Saudi Arabia],” Wolff said in Mercedes’ race preview.
“We’re grateful to still be in this fight. The fact that both championships will be decided at the season finale proves just how hard both sides have been challenging each other and pushing each other forward.
“It’s all or nothing for the season finale and that’s amazing for the sport, amazing for the fans and amazing for all of us, too.”
A new challenge
Wolff is looking forward to the title being determined, as well as seeing how the improvements to the track in Abu Dhabi will affect the racing.
“We’re also relishing the challenges of racing in Abu Dhabi this weekend, at a circuit that has gone through quite a few changes since we last raced there,” the Team Principal explained.
“There are new sections of track to understand and that really is a step into the unknown for everyone, so it’s going to be another exciting weekend!”
