After catching COVID-19, Wolf, out of quarantine, talks to Hamilton late with a “curve ball” – Motorsports

Mercedes F1 team boss and co-owner Toto Wolff has revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 and had to be quarantined in Austria this month, but is no longer quarantined.

The 49-year-old Austrian ORF TV said in an interview on Sunday at the Kitzbuhel Alpine Ski World Cup downhill that there were no symptoms.

“We were supposed to be here for a few days, but out of nowhere the corona test was positive,” said Wolff of Austria. “But everything is fine … it may not have worked, but we are out of quarantine.”

Five F1 drivers, including Mercedes’ seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, have the new coronavirus. So do Aston Martin team owner Lawrence Stroll and Williams principal Simon Roberts.

Wolff owns one-third of the Mercedes team as a petrochemical equivalent partner of Ineos and its parent company Daimler AG.

The current focus of Austrians is to sign a new contract with Hamilton, who lost his contract since the end of last year and celebrated his 36th birthday this month.

Wolff said the lawyers are working hard and need to sign a contract before the pre-season test in Bahrain in March.

The season begins on March 28th at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain.

“Of course, when we discuss Zoom and keep sending curveballs to lawyers, we don’t make their lives easier,” Wolff said.

“He’s in America right now and I’m here. At some point we’ll complete it (trading).

“We have a really solid foundation in our relationship. We celebrate great success together and want to continue to do so, but sometimes we need to discuss in detail, which It takes time, and it still takes time. “
