LONDON: Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said on Wednesday he was weighing up his future role but felt he still had a lot to contribute to the Formula One world champions.

The Austrian is a shareholder in the team but his managerial contract is up for renewal and his future has been subject to considerable speculation, with Mercedes' six-times champion Lewis Hamilton keen to know.

Wolff, who has presided over the team winning the last six drivers' and constructors' titles, told reporters in a Zoom call he had "the best intention to stay" but still needed to question himself.

"I dont want to become a team principal that goes from great to good without realizing that hes maybe not adding as much any more to the team as he did in the beginning," said the Austrian.

He said he had an 'excellent working relationship' with Ola Kaellenius, chairman of parent company Daimler, and negotiations had started on "carving our joint future".

There have been reports in the German media that Wolff did not get on as well with Kaellenius as he did with predecessor Dieter Zetsche but the Austrian laughed that off.
