F1 has now reached the midway stage of the 2018 season and while we lead both Championships heading to Hungary, there's still a long way to go.
"We've had our fair share of bad luck this season, but it felt like our fortunes turned around in Hockenheim," Toto said.
"A one-two is always a great result; to get it on Mercedes home turf after starting from P2 and P14 on the grid was absolutely incredible. However, in the cold light of day, we also know and recognise that we did not bring the quickest car to Hockenheim.
"We've passed the halfway point of the season and we lead both championships by very close margins.
"Each and every member of our team has worked very hard to make this possible and the determination and energy in our factories seems to be ever-growing.
"We all know that no prizes are given out for half-time champions, so we will keep pushing to improve our performance."
