"Our first goal is to be perceived as a frontrunner, on par with Ferrari, McLaren and Red Bull," the Austrian told Germany's Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper.

"But then there must be a world title," Wolff insisted.

"We are doing this to make the brand image more dynamic and younger.

"When you think of Mercedes, you should think of the Silver Arrows racing successfully."
