The very high-tension finale of this 2021 World Cup now seems to involve everyone. Not only the two teams that are literally playing the two world titles point by point, but also the experts, such as commentators and former drivers who – in some cases – are getting directly involved in the top duel. This is the case of the 1996 world champion, Damon Hill, now at the center of a head-to-head access with the Red Bull team principal for two weeks Christian Horner. The two had already clashed after the Interlagos race, with Hill criticizing Verstappen’s behavior on the track and Horner defending his protégé.
The second act took place in Losail, with a direct confrontation on the British channel Sky Sports F1, characterized by a rather harsh replica of the number one of the Red Bull short wall against the penultimate world champion at home Williams. “I think we’ve been pretty good with our emotions – commented Horner replying to Hill, who asked him for an opinion on the emotional management of this phase of the championship – I didn’t point the finger and swear at the cameras and all that kind of thing “ he added, making a clear reference to Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff’s ‘show’ in Brazil.
Hill disagreed, taking as an example the answers given by Horner towards him when, after the Brazilian match, he had challenged Verstappen’s defensive maneuvers, judging them incorrect. At this point came the piqued reaction of the Milton Keynes boss: “I’m just direct and say what I think. If I think you’re doing the bitch, then I’ll tell you that you’re doing the bitch“, He turned to Hill.
