Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says that he expects Ferrari to be strong once again next year. In 2017, Mercedes were challenged to both the world and constructor’s titles for the first time since the V6 hybrid era began in 2014.
Ferrari’s title hopes slipped away after the summer break, with Sebastian Vettel eliminated from Singapore and Japan due to a first lap collision and a spark plug problem. In Malaysia, both Ferraris suffered reliability issues – Vettel in qualifying and Kimi Raikkonen before the race got underway.
Mercedes managed to wrap up both titles early, and with just one race left to run in 2017, Wolff has already offered his prediction for next season.
