We talked about the hypothesis put forward a week ago by Eddie Jordan, who announced that the British chemical concern Ineos was going to buy the Formula 1 factory team from Mercedes. We also quoted Toto Wolff, who assured that Daimler had no intentions to sell Mercedes-AMG.
However, the founder and former team leader Jordan continues to insist that his information is accurate. 72-year-old Jordan took part in the Formule 1 Cafe program, which is broadcast on the Dutch TV channel Ziggo Sport, and during the conversation, one of the hosts – Robert Dornbos, a former Formula 1 racer – asked him if there was a possibility that Toto Wolff would not renew a contract with Mercedes and next year will be transferred to Aston Martin, owned by Lawrence Stroll?
“There is such a possibility,” Eddie Jordan replied. – But the only thing I’m sure of is that Ineos will buy the Mercedes team. Toto is a phenomenally successful manager. But the time has come when he must leave. He has already won everything he can. And also created a whole myth around Lewis Hamilton and this team.
It must be remembered that there are good times in life and very bad times. And for Toto, now is the right moment. If I were his advisor, I would say: “Toto, leave this team, please. Take the money that is offered to you. Then it will be more difficult to do it.
It remains to add that Eddie Jordan’s predictions, no matter how daring they are, most often come true.
