New Delhi, Jan 21 — Formula 1 team Mercedes have announced that Toto Wolff, formerly executive director at Williams, and Niki Lauda, non-executive chairman of Mercedes F1 team's board, will both become investors.
Wolff, whose Williams departure was announced earlier Monday, will acquire a "significant minority interest" in the team, which he will head up in his role as executive director of owners Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ltd. and will take over the complete coordination of all Mercedes-Benz motorsport activities, the role formerly filled by Norbert Haug.
Wolff sees his new task as one of the most exciting challenges in motorsport.
"Mercedes is one of the most important participants in motorsport worldwide. I am looking forward to the challenge and, along with preparing for a successful racing season, also want to focus on the targeted promotion of new talent," said Wolff.
