Mercedes F1 team boss Toto Wolff says that 2016 F1 season will be the “biggest test yet” for the team under the current regulations, as main competitor Ferrari closes in.

The Silver Arrows took a dominant form in F1 since introduction of V6 power unit last season. The Mercedes has already secured constructors’ championship, while Lewis Hamilton took his second straight drivers’ title at the U.S. Grand Prix. They wrapped up 35 out of 37 poles, 31 out of 37 wins, and four out of four titles.

Wolff says Abu Dhabi offers the opportunity for Mercedes to enjoy its success as he expects a much hard challenge in 2016 F1 season.

“It was very satisfying to leave Brazil with another top result after a race that was far less straightforward than it might have looked,” Wolff said.

“We now go to Abu Dhabi with the best possible Championship positions secured and a chance to reflect on an incredible year.

“We can all be extremely proud of what we have achieved in 2015. To raise the bar from 2014 was always going to be a huge challenge – but everybody at Brackley, Brixworth and Stuttgart has taken on that challenge exceptionally well.

“While we celebrate a job well done this time around, however, the next challenge will be upon us before we know it. 2016 will undoubtedly provide our biggest test yet as a group. We will not be backing off – and an entertaining battle at the front between our boys for one last time in 2015 will be the ideal way to show that.”
