Toto Wolff expects great things from his team in the coming period. The CEO of Mercedes believes that the Singapore GP will be a great opportunity for them to make a good result. In an interview with the media, Wolff emphasized that it is encouraging to see the Mercedes W14 going in the right direction.

It seems that their car can adapt to all conditions. “We maximised the result in Monza with the package we had,” he said, as quoted by! “That will be important across the rest of the season to secure second in the Constructors'

At a circuit that didn't necessarily suit the characteristics of our car, we were still competitive. It's encouraging to see that the W14 is performing well across a range of tracks. We've had some time to debrief an intense double
header and we're now heading into another one.

Singapore will certainly be an interesting challenge. The question is how much Mercedes will be able to do in Singapore. The conditions that will appear in such a race can be a huge problem for everyone. However, Toto and the rest of the team are optimistic and hope for a positive result.

“Singapore is a unique challenge for every team. The hot and humid conditions are tough on the drivers, team members and the cars. It's a bumpy track and there are some changes to the layout for this year, too. It should make the lap more flowing and slightly kinder on the tyres.

The battle with our nearest competitors is incredibly close. It's hard to predict just how the order will shake out each weekend. Nonetheless, we typically perform better on high downforce tracks, so we're hopeful of a competitive showing”.

An interesting race awaits us, although many expect Red Bull to win easily. However, it is too early to make any predictions. The race will best show how much one can do at this moment.
