(cafetheology.org) – Mercedes has prepared itself for the short term changes at the car market after the experience with the resignation of Nico Rosberg and prepared alternative solutions. "In Formula 1, you have to have a plan B for certain areas," says Sportchef Toto Wolff against 'Motorsport.com'. "Even if you have a contract, it does not necessarily mean that everything is going to happen." The circumstances could change. "This experience had to make Mercedes last December, when Rosberg after winning the world title also surprised the team his resignation From the formula 1. "It is always easier to solve problems that you see coming, but at Nico it came out of nowhere, and at a time when all drivers were already under contract," Wolff said. The team remained the best possible substitute for Rosberg Valtteri Bottas, but the Mercedes first had to free in tough negotiations from Williams. In the future, however, the team was better prepared for spontaneous rider changes. "We now have a Plan A, but there are many unknowns because the 2018 and 2019 car market can get very moving," says Wolff. "This is why it is important that you have a plan B or C." This is especially important at the moment, because at the end of 2018 the contracts of numerous top drivers are running out. "This is very complex, there are plenty of ways where the drivers could land," says Wolff. And some would also be an alternative for his team. "A handful of pilots would deliver a good performance in a Mercedes."
