Ferrari Shakes Hands with Samsung

Ferrari’s new partner Samsung will be piloting the way for in-car displays.

  • Samsung Display will be whipping up “bespoke OLED technology display solutions” for the next generation of Ferraris. What’s next, a touchscreen steering wheel? We’re here for it! 😂

Racing to Riches: How Toto Wolff Zoomed into the Billionaire’s Club

buckle up for a wild ride! Toto Wolff, the big kahuna of Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team, is now part of the billionaire club, and it’s all thanks to a sweet deal that scored him a cool $500 million. F1’s growth is like a rocket strapped to a cheetah – it ain’t slowing down anytime soon.

So, how did Toto go from being a racing junkie to a billionaire baller? Our man had his hands on the wheel as a racer, switched lanes into investing, and then zoomed into F1 like a boss for the past 15 years. Mercedes hired him with a delicious discount on an equity stake, making him the F1’s ultimate rainmaker.

Once Toto entered the scene, he transformed Mercedes from a struggling team into a legendary powerhouse. It’s like he sprinkled some magic F1 fairy dust, and suddenly Mercedes dominated with 8 straight championships. The team’s revenue went from zero to a hundred real quick, and Mercedes’ brand value pumped up 75% since 2013.

And let’s not forget about Formula 1 as a whole – it’s been thriving like an avocado tree in California. Liberty Media scooped it up for $4.4 billion in 2016, and now it’s flexing with a whopping $16 billion value. Wolff’s Mercedes F1 stake is worth around $500 million, and with his $25 million salary and other investments, he’s become a big shot in F1.

So there you have it, the epic journey of Toto Wolff cruisin’ into the billionaire’s club with style and a whole lotta horsepower!
