Many teams are in the process of transition and that increases the movements restructuring of staff, including pilots.

Recently, Helmut Marko said that both Ferrari as Mercedes had been interested by Daniel Ricciardo, and this coincides with the end of the contract that binds to Nico Rosberg, the brand of the three-pointed star.

Toto Wolff, head of sports team Mercedes, wanted to exit the passage of rumors and statements to Sport Bild, said that “Nico is part of the family Mercedes, so that will be the first person to talk about”, mattifying later that “at that point he will have to tell us what you want”.

in Addition to Daniel Ricciardo, Mercedes is very aware of his protected at the Manor: Pascal Wehrlein. In this regard, Wolff says that they have very in account. “Pascal has been given responsibility at an early age to lead the team Manor. We are going to see up close and then we will decide how to proceed with your career”, ended Toto Wolff.
