Toto Wolff is one of the most famous and successful Formula One team managers in the history of the sport, and the Mercedes chief’s attention to detail extends even to his bizarre diet, which he adheres to without fail.
Formula One team principal Toto Wolff eats the same lunch and dinner daily.
The Mercedes team principal has been the most famous F1 team principal for ten years. During his leadership, the Silver Arrows have dominated, becoming the first team to win eight consecutive constructor championships between 2014 and 2021.
The Austrian-born billionaire has thus acquired the aura of a highly meticulous and demanding director who strives for perfection in everything he does.
It is, therefore, no surprise that the fifty-one-year-old billionaire follows a strange diet regime that involves eating the same food twice a day.
In an interview with the BBC, Wolff explained that his job’s complex and stressful nature makes him strive to reduce variables in all other aspects of his life while traveling during the Formula One calendar.
Speaking on the Desert Island Discs program, Toto Wolff said, ” It’s really about reducing trivial things. I wear the same clothes, eat the same food – right down to the fact that my assistants book the same hotel room for me every year.”
Toto Wolff is extremely strict in his daily life.
When Wolff was asked what he usually eats, he replied, “The same dark bread – pumpernickel with butter and some ham.”
Despite Wolff maintaining high standards both personally and within the Mercedes team, the Brackley-based team has fallen behind rivals Red Bull in recent seasons following changes to the 2021 rules and regulations.
Mercedes finished third in the 2022 Constructors’ Championship and is second in the 2023 championship. The team’s last win came last year when George Russell scored an emotional victory in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
