Toto Wolff – the forgotten Red Bull driver!

Toto Wolff has established himself as one of the most successful team bosses in Formula 1 history, but the Mercedes chief was also once a racing driver in his own right.

Before his wheeling and dealing in business landed him in F1, first as a director with Williams and then as a co-team owner with Mercedes, Wolff enjoyed some reasonable success in GT racing.

Still a young hopeful, the Austrian won his category in the 1994 edition of the gruelling Nürburgring 24 Hours.

He later veered towards the FIA GT Championship, racing a BMW all decked out in Red Bull's colors that propelled his teammates and himself to a class win in the 1000 Miles of Interlagos in 2004.

Flanked by touring car ace Dieter Quester and Philipp Peter, Wolff also did Red Bull proud by winning the Misano 6 Hours in 2005, while the trio – joined by Hans Stuck – became the first winners of the Dubai 24 Hours race in 2006.
