Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff played down expectations over the new 2019 aerodynamic regulations saying,
“Since 2017, it’s the second time that we’ve had a huge shake-up in the regulations,” said Wolff. “It’s all been reset. Every team has a chance of producing a front-running car and I’m personally very excited to see how some of the teams come out and whether we’ve been able to maintain our position at the front.
“Five double championships is far more than we would have ever expected but every season starts with zero points. There is nothing, no credit that you can take from previous seasons into a new one, and this is why we embrace every year with the same motivation and hunger as every season before.”
