Mercedes boss Toto Wolff insists that the team will not get carried away with their start to the Formula 1 campaign.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has insisted that the team will not get carried away with their impressive start to the Formula 1 campaign.

Wolff's team bounced back from a disappointing 2012 to record a third-place finish in the Malaysian Grand Prix last week, with Lewis Hamilton finishing behind the Red Bulls at Sepang.

"I was not so unhappy that we did not make it on pole because imagine how much the expectation would have been for the race," Wolff told Autosport.

"We had a good solid race, the world champion has still shown us that there is lots to do, and that we should switch our lights off later than the others in the offices.

"The expectations are there, but we must not let ourselves be carried away."

Next up is the Chinese Grand Prix, which gets underway on April 12.
