In recent days, there was talk for the first time about the possibility of being able to make changes to the Formula 1 regulations for next season. More precisely, to install the “inverted grid”. However, Toto wolff He exploded before rumors of this nature and anticipated that he would not agree with the measure, if it is taken.
On Sunday morning, Toto Wolff, head of the Mercedes team, was very angry and openly declared about the possible implementation of the inverted grid. Ross Brawn, Formula 1 sporting director, said they were planning to install the measure by 2021. This would give drivers at the back of the grid more chances.
The last Grand Prix, in Monza, generated thousands of emotions in the fans who wanted to see an exciting race again until the last lap. This is why the measure took hold again in recent days. “I don’t think we should make changes to any of the formats,” Wolff told the media this Sunday.
Furthermore, Wolff stated that: ‘This is not because Mercedes is harmed. On the contrary, I like the variation and the unpredictability, and that would give us races that would be very different, just like the one we had at Monza. This is a meritocracy, this is a sport where the best man and the best machine win. This is not wrestling where the results are random.
Finally, the Austrian’s voice made itself heard. Wolff commented that: ‘If we want to do something random then let’s do a show, but I think the DNA of the Formula 1 it is to be first a sport and then an entertainment platform. It is not a show. It is not a reality show, nor is it Big Brother, and I don’t think we should go in that direction. “
