Mercedes not ruling out Indy 500, Le Mans
Toto Wolff is not ruling out a return for Mercedes in the future to the fabled Indy 500 and Le Mans races.
The German marque's new motor sport chief, Austrian Wolff told Italy's Autosprint that his immediate goal is for Mercedes to "finish among the top four" in this year's F1 season.
But when asked specifically about a possible return for Mercedes to the Indy 500 and Le Mans, Wolff admitted: "Basically, we would look at any racing category.
"It would have to make sense for the Mercedes brand.
"Today we're focusing on formula one, the DTM, and we also do GT3 cars and build engines for formula 3.
"As for the future, I don't rule out anything," added Wolff. "I think it would be wonderful to go back to Indy and Le Mans.
"But just for the moment, we have our programme."
