Wolff still not eyeing Ecclestone job

Toto Wolff says he is not interested in succeeding Bernie Ecclestone as boss of formula one.

F1 sponsor guru Zak Brown had been tipped for the role in the forthcoming Liberty Media era, but McLaren has just unveiled the American as its new post-Ron Dennis executive director instead.

The famous British team said it is the “first step in the group’s transition to a new and strengthened organisational structure”.

This week, 86-year-old Ecclestone repeated his insistence that former Ferrari and Mercedes chief Ross Brawn is unqualified to join him in the area of F1’s commercial rights.

So attention is now returning to Toto Wolff, who admitted recently that he is currently negotiating an extension to his current role as Mercedes team boss.

The Austrian told the French daily Le Figaro: “No, I do not dream about leading F1.

“I think it is much more difficult than the people who criticise Bernie think. Adapting the sport to a digital universe and generating income is very complex and I prefer if someone else fixes the problem.

“I have to keep my attention on the development of my team,” Wolff added.
