'Big hole for Wolff, Lowe to fill'

Niki Lauda has confidence in Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe but concedes the duo have a big gap to fill.

With Ross Brawn stepping down as Mercedes team boss at the end of this year, the job of leading the Formula One team has been left to Wolff and Lowe.

While Wolff is the executive director (business), Lowe holds a similar by in technical as the team has opted for a two-pronged leadership.

It is one, though, that Lauda hopes will flourish.

"Now Toto Wolff and Paddy Lowe, and Paddy especially on the technical side, have to fill this big hole he [Brawn] has left," the Mercedes non-executive chairman told Reuters.

"Don't worry, I am going to kick them like you do not believe... and hopefully we can keep on going."
