Rivals on and off the track: they are Red Bull And Mercedes, the teams that are competing for titles, victories and honors in this World Cup. As soon as they can they tease each other, hoping to annoy their opponents, to make them nervous. In this championship, everything counts, even one word more or less. And then they flow in rivers. The latest, those of Red Bull team principal Chris Horner, they weren’t very flattering towards Mercedes. While claiming to respect his opponent, the British “distanced himself” from Toto Wolff and company.
“We are as competitive off the track as we are on the track. There will always be friction between us and them. Mercedes wants to defend the title, we finally want to win again. This is the only reason we are here in Formula 1: to win“, He told SportBild. “Between us there is mutual respect, nothing else: there is no real relationship between the two teams. We have little to do with Mercedes and it is not a model for us. Even though it has won in recent years, we set goals and standards on our own. We do not follow anyone“.
