Recently appointed Mercedes executive director Toto Wolff’s personal life has taken a turn towards confidentiality with his new post.

A shareholder with not only the German manufacturer’s Formula 1 team but also with Williams, the Austrian is now required to keep secrets from his wife Susie, who is the development driver for the British team, to avoid sharing of information between the rival teams.

"It's going to be pretty difficult," Wolff was quoted saying by Reuters. "Last week she came back from an aero test and I asked her 'how was your day?' and she said 'I think I can't speak to you about that'.

"So we have to find new ways of communication at home, which is quite interesting. We are not talking motorsport any more at dinner but lots of other stuff," he pointed out.
