Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff is happy that Alex Albon has been given the second seat at Williams for 2022.

Why it matters: Recently, there have been discussions about whether Mercedes would affect the driver selection at Williams.


  • Wolff denied this, saying that the Mercedes never interferes in such decisions by other teams.

What he had to say:

In the same way, we have no contractual rights that we could have or would have utilized, because I don’t think it’s right to meddle with the team’s decision of drivers, full stop.
