Toto Wolff, the big boss at Mercedes, found himself in a bit of a pickle recently. Picture this: he’s at the Imola circuit, right? Steering a beastly Mercedes AMG GT3. And bam! He kisses the wall. Luckily, the Austrian walked away without a scratch.

So, here’s the scoop. After the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix, Wolff decided to jet off to Italy. Why? For a thrilling day of burning rubber at Imola. He was driving Marco Antonelli’s Mercedes, who’s the dad of this rising star, Andrea Kimi Antonelli. Despite Wolff’s experience, some sneaky damp spots on the track had other plans. Result? A not-so-graceful slide into the barrier.

### Wolff Makes Slide at Imola
“Okay, so my driving skills? Maybe not top-notch at the moment,” Wolff admitted to OE24. He was trying out the track at Imola when, oops, a little hiccup with the ‘traction control’. Just two laps in, and he’s already making friends with the wall. But hey, he’s all good, aside from a bruised ego, perhaps. And, like a true champ, he didn’t let the crash keep him down for long.

Now, let’s switch gears a bit. After Wolff’s adventurous day, Mercedes’ young gun, Andrea Kimi Antonelli, decided to take the track for a spin. School’s out, and what better way to unwind than some laps at Imola, right? Antonelli’s got his eyes on the F1 prize, but first, he’s gotta shine in Formula 2. Over in Jeddah, he snagged sixth place not once, but twice, racing for Prema Racing in F2. Talk about a promising start!
