Toto Wolff, CEO of Mercedes AMG Petronas team in Formula One: «No, I did not enjoy the battle. Whilst you are in the battle, it's really tough. Because you have moments when you are doing well and you think the momentum is on your side and then it swings the other way around and you need to recover. If you look back, I wouldn't want to have it any different. Because it's what Formula 1 is all... Еще about. It's about fighting on track, it's the pinnacle of motor racing. And you expect your competitors to be very strong. It makes the end result even more enjoyable, but while it is going on, it is tough.»
