The Mercedes-AMG F1 team principal is taking advantage of a vacation to spend time with his family, but the trip has been marred by Wolff's injuries sustained while taking part in an outdoor activity. On Sunday morning, Toto's wife Susie Wolff posted a couple of photos to Instagram from their vacation with the Mercedes team boss, during which they brought their son Jack on a trip of his own. Toto was shown in the last picture, strolling by his son while holding his hand, but his left arm was completely cast, implying that the Austrian had broken a bone when he fell off his mountain bike. There was no other hint that the holiday had to be cut short, and Wolff appeared to be fine and in excellent spirits. The family also went karting, where Susie was photographed for the first time since retiring from racing while wearing her racing gear.

Toto Wolf's Arm Injury

A simple message read, "Action-packed start to the summer holidays," beneath Wolff's social media image. In the last photo, you can see how Toto's day of downhill mountain biking turned out.

Wolff has a history of getting hurt when engaging in non-work-related hobbies. Wolff, when out cycling in Hungary with the rest of the Mercedes crew in 2014, caused a pileup. Wolff had multiple fractures, including his elbow, shoulder, collarbone, and wrist; Susie began calling him the "Totonator" because of the metal plate surgically implanted in his wrist to treat the broken bones. 

A few months later, he fractured his kneecap from falling off an exercise ball.

The eight-time world champions, Mercedes, have released their annual sustainability report, detailing the progress they have made within the company and their future goals. The Silver Arrows' 66-page booklet is broken down into three main sections: environment, society, and administration.


The company has saved 2,600 tons of carbon dioxide from their decreased air travel emissions since 2022. Sustainable Aviation Fuel has benefited from pioneering literature and claims, as well as investments. Mercedes has reduced its gas emissions by 13per cent as it transitions to complete electrification and has increased the percentage of trash diverted from landfills to energy recovery and recycling to 98per cent.


With the Accelerate 25 program, Mercedes aims to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace. As of the first half of 2023, 37per cent of the company's new employees are members of a historically under-represented group. As of June 2023, their percentage of women in the workforce was 16.6per cent, up 11per cent from 2019, while the percentage of people from underrepresented groups in the workforce was 8.9per cent, up from 3per cent in 2019.


A new Integrity Code, Human Rights Policy, Environmental Policy, and Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy were all released within Mercedes in the past year as part of the company's updated Governance, Ethics, and Compliance framework. Finally, a new whistleblowing mechanism has been introduced, along with Due Diligence platforms and checks against sanctions.
