Mercedes have the 2015 F1 champions T-shirts ready

Lewis Hamilton, celebrates winning the 2014 Constructors Championship with Toto Wolff

Mercedes’ F1 team boss Toto Wolff has revealed that the T-shirts which his team will wear to celebrate back-to-back constructors’ championships, have already been printed and ready to wear in Russia.

The Silvers Arrows need only score three points more than nearest rival Ferrari on Sunday to hold the constructors’ championship they won for the first time at Sochi’s Olympic Park circuit last October.

“The T-shirts are upstairs,” Wolff told reporters.

“We can pretend tomorrow that we have not printed them, and then suddenly everybody wears one.

“It is not a good omen to talk about T-shirts the day before the race but eventually we are going to wear them.”

“It will be a very big achievement,” Wolff added.

“It would be the second title and the constructors’ championship makes us proud. We will add a little bit of history and nobody can take that away from us, so that is important.

“What makes me particularly proud is that it is such a big group of individuals having worked so hard. I know that sounds boring, but it is an achievement of having built a car and an engine which is very dominating in an era.”

Mercedes have won 27 of the last 33 races, and have been on pole at all but one race this season – the only exception being in Singapore where they were mysteriously off the pace.

“You just need to come out of that with a calm approach. We have done that. We bounced back in Suzuka and we have had a good day here. How the team keeps developing is just nice to be a part of. It is a really team effort.” Wolff added.

“Obviously, the drivers’ championship is the one that is very relevant to all the fans and that is then the next box we have to tick and that is not a given that it is going to be easy.”

Hamilton is 48 points clear of Rosberg and looking likely at the moment to wrap up his third crown with a race or two to spare.

However, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel is still mathematically a threat, 59 points adrift of the Briton after winning three races.
