Wolff feels Mercedes pressure
Formula 1, Updated:
Mercedes executive director Toto Wolff believes he must bring swift success to the German outfit ahead of the 2013 Formula One season.
Having left Williams to join Mercedes in January, Wolff has been keen to get up to speed with his new team before the start of the campaign next month.
The new driving partnership of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will be looking to secure more than the one victory recorded in the 2012 campaign which came at the Chinese Grand Prix.
Wolff has admitted there is plenty of pressure on himself and the team at Mercedes to make a strong start to the season, which gets underway at the Australian Grand Prix on March 17.
He told the official F1 website: "As they [Mercedes] know I have put my neck on the line - they know that I have no room for failure.
"I have been here for two weeks but nobody cares whether I've been here one year or one week.
"I know that Mercedes' standard is to be a top team and if it is not the case then obviously it is going to be difficult to justify what I do."
