BIG SHOES TO FILL: Will Toto join Mercedes as head of motorsport replacing Norbert Haug?

BERLIN, Germany - Williams F1 team shareholder and executive director Toto Wolff will join Mercedes as head of motorsport to replace Norbert Haug, Germany's Bild reported.

Mercedes - which has Britain's 2008 World champion Lewis Hamilton and Germany's Nico Rosberg as F1 drivers - would not comment on speculation. Williams also had no comment.


If the unsourced report is confirmed, the move would be seen as a major setback for former champion team Williams as it  prepares for the 2013 season that will start in Australia on March 17.

The Austrian was handed a far more hands-on role in July 2012, working closely with team founder and principal Frank Williams.

Wolff's compatriot Niki Lauda, a retired three-times World champion, was appointed as non-executive chairman of the board of the Mercedes F1 team after Haug's departure was announced in December 2012.


Bild said on its website that the move could be announced at a DTM (German Touring Car) test at the Valencia track in eastern Spain on Tuesday.

Wolff, whose Scottish wife Susie drove a Mercedes in DTM, is a shareholder in HWA AG which runs a Mercedes DTM team and works with Mercedes in F3.
