Mercedes boss man, Toto Wolff, spoke to ‘Sunday Times’ in an interview lately, highlighting the ideals that keep people on the go. He shed light on essential core values that go into teamwork and the importance of being mindful of everybody’s contribution.
Highlighting his admiration for sportspersons who have openly talked about mental health and its importance in the field, Toto Wolff went on to share his own take on its relevance.
The gymnastic legend, Simone Biles, pulled out from Artistic Gymnastics at the Tokyo Games due to mental health issues and took a much-needed stand on the subject. Alongside the four Gold Olympic gold medal winner, we have former World’s No 1, Naomi Osaka, who too vocalized her struggles with depression and took steps needed for self-care.
“High-profile people who seem to have everything but are struggling, I think we have an obligation to say we’re getting help and it’s ok to get help. Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka deserve a lot of credit for how they’ve spoken about this.”
Mercedes, win-less this season, is refusing to leave a single stone unturned as they invest in ‘expensive mattresses’ in order to optimize the performance in the future.
Toto Wolff took an unconventional route to see his team perform at their highest potential
As per recent reports, Mercedes has made an investment for a ‘secret weapon’ each worth $2330.
However, their investments do not revolve around cars, so to speak. It’s more to the bed back home. Lewis Hamilton and George Russell are currently sleeping in state-of-the-art, high-end, expensive, intuitive mattresses that gauge their body temperature, breathing, and heart rate.
They engineered this to enable a better understanding of their fitness needs and help them work around those needs in a better way.
The $540 Million Worth, Mercedes Boss, has endorsed this current experiment as they also continue to better their W-13 alongside.
