Jordan tells Wolff to 'get the hell out' of Mercedes!

Former team boss and pundit extraordinaire Eddie Jordan says Toto Wolff should "get the hell out" of Mercedes, because the German team's fortunes are at their peak.

Wolff's management contract with Mercedes runs out at the end of this year, but the Austrian has repeatedly said that he intends on remaining with the manufacturer in F1, although in a less burdensome role.

Jordan recently claimed that Mercedes was negotiating an outright sale of its F1 outfit to UK chemical giant and sponsor INEOS. But the story was subsequently rubbished by Wolff.

Nevertheless, Jordan believes the time is ripe for Wolff - who holds a 30% stake in the Mercedes team - to cash in his chips.

"The only thing that I was really sure about is that INEOS will buy the team," reiterated Jordan, speaking to Ziggo Sport.

"And for sure in that package, with the people of Mercedes and particularly the new Chief Executive, it's a well-known fact that Ola [Kallenius - Mercedes boss], who is the new CEO and the chairman of the group, he's had some issues with Toto in the past.

"And, you know, Toto, to be very honest, he is right up there with the likes of the Frank Williamses, the Ron Dennises and all of these guys, you know.

"He's been sensational. So it's time that he moved on himself."

The dominant Black Arrows outfit is on course to win its seventh consecutive Constructors' title this year, with Hamilton also racing towards a seventh crown.

For Jordan, Mercedes' fortunes are as good as they will ever be, leaving Wolff with little more to achieve.

"I'm sure he's getting tired of the situation," added Jordan. "He's won all of these championships and he's created a myth around Lewis Hamilton and indeed the team.

"In life, you've got to remember that there is a very good time to get out and there's a very bad time to get out. And a very good time is now for Toto.

"If it was me, and I was his advisor, I would say: 'Get the hell out of there. Please, Toto. Take the money off the table, it will never get as good as this in the future'."

Button: Hamilton 'the cleanest guy' I ever raced against

Jenson Button holds Lewis Hamilton in high regard for his outstanding talent, but the 2009 world champion also underlines his former teammate and F1 rival's clean ethics.

Button spent three seasons alongside Hamilton at McLaren between 2010 and 2013, and while the two drivers often battled each other wheel-to-wheel, common sense and mutual respect kept clashes at bay.

In an interview with GQ Magazine, Button revisited the period spent alongside the now six-time world champion but also assessed how the Mercedes star has evolved.

"I don’t know Lewis now that well. Lewis in 2012 was an extremely talented driver, whose whole life was about racing," Button said.

"I had to work so hard to beat him, and obviously it didn’t happen all the time. But it happened enough that I was happy with what I achieved.

"On balance he out-qualified me, but I could race him, and use my head because it wasn’t all about driving flat-out in a Grand Prix. It isn’t now.

"But Lewis has learnt a lot since then. He’s always looking after the tyres, the fuel, the car… he knows what he’s doing."

But beyond Hamilton's remarkable skills, Button underscored his former rival's fairness and impeccable track record.

"He’s in a position now where he can relax and think about other things in addition to driving the car," added Button.

"He can be very outspoken and I think it’s great that he is. It will help the sport and the diversity of the sport.

"Whether or not you’re a fan of Lewis as a person, you should definitely be a fan of him as a driver.

"He is exceptionally talented, and he does not play games. He will never play dirty. In fact, I think he’s the cleanest guy I ever raced against."
