Mercedes GP Executive Director Toto Wolff admits that he would regard it as a failure if Mercedes does not win the 2014 World Championship – although he insists that the team’s advantage is not as big as outsiders might think.
“I don’t see it as a big advantage, to be honest,” he said. “You can see if you have a DNF, you lose points. McLaren is leading the constructors’, So we cannot pause in the whole thing. Yes, we have a little bit of a margin at the moment, and losing that margin now is something that I would consider as a failure.”
