Toto Wolff thinks that Formula 1 has reached success with the new regulations, though they hurt Mercedes’ performance.

One of the main purposes of the new technical regulations is to ensure closer racing. More than that, it made changes to the pecking order of the grid. After the first two races of the season, Wolff shared his thoughts about whether the new rules worked.

“I think yes, they have achieved what they wanted to achieve,” the Mercedes team principal said.

“[There has been] spectacular racing, good overtaking, [and] the grid has been shaken up! Well, this is less funny for us, but it happened.

“The midfield is extremely close so, overall, I think from the entertainment factor, I’m happy about the hype that is around Formula 1.

“I think they achieved the target and you can only applaud how that all came in.”
