Wolff cancels plan to skip Japanese GP amid Mercedes struggles

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff will attend this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix after altering his plans to miss the event.

Wolff had been expected to be absent in Suzuka as part of a planned management of his workload during the gruelling 24-race calendar.

However, Mercedes have confirmed that the Austrian will now be present at the fourth round of the 2024 season, from which every session is live on Sky Sports F1.
