Mercedes have an array of options to replace either Hamilton or Bottas if the need arises, with junior driver programme graduates George Russell and Esteban Ocon foremost among them.
Wolff is confident Mercedes will stay strong whatever situation arises, even if he is very much aware of the threat their rivals pose.
“Yes [Mercedes are spoilt for choice], but we must not be complacent,” Wolff said. “Red Bull has two very talented drivers, Ferrari has very talented drivers – I think the combination they’ve chosen is very good.
“We need to make sure our short-term future is in good hands, and there are no better hands out there than Lewis’, and then our mid-to-long-term strategy is being considered. It’s not an easy situation but we are in a good place.”
