She stated the Mercedes boss is not a fan of birthdays and prefers to avoid celebrating them. “Toto is not a fan of birthdays. Prefers to look forward and not back. Says the long game counts, and he is only halfway (that is maybe a bit optimistic now). But today marks a milestone. 49 + 1 years. Happy Birthday, Toto. Thank you for all that you are and all that you do,” said Susie in her post.

“Of course, it’s not easy, but we have to make it. It is important to establish priorities. We both realize that marriage and family come first. But of course, we are proud of what Toto is doing. And if Jack and I have to get on a plane to see him, we’ll do it,” she said.

Toto too complimented his wife for maintaining a perfect balance in their lives. “Susie is the system maintainer of the Wolff family. We are very lucky because we are very similar in characters and tasks. Family comes first, then work. But this common field of interest, motorsport, is what we have always done. That’s why we talk about it at dinner. The mix of both makes it,” said Toto.
