“Every loss of an important member in a garage affects a race, but I think we got it under control by having backup in Brackley and they came in," Wolff said.

Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas have minimum exposure to the other team staff because “it is really critical for the championship if you miss a race or two," Wolff said.
