In 2021, the relations between Mercedes and Red Bull became tense as Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton got into a heated fight for the F1 title.

Toto Wolff has attacked Red Bull by saying he wouldn’t want Max Verstappen Christian Horner or Helmut Marko at Mercedes.

Wolff and Horner were embroiled in a bitter battle of words during 2021 campaign. They made digs at one another as Verstappen fought for the world title. The Austrian accused Horner, his rival, of being a “stupid” person. “windbag”In one exchange, both bosses were labeled “childish”Mathias Lauda during Title Run-In

Their rivalry was further exacerbated by the controversial end to the Abu Dhabi campaign. The now-infamous safety car procedure gave Verstappen the opportunity to surpass Hamilton on the final lap, and to be crowned world champ. Horner was the one who pressured Michael Masi, the race director, to modify his original instructions.

Two protests were launched by Mercedes following the race. Both of these were dismissed both by race stewards. Verstappen was forced to wait late into the night in order to get his win. Horner stated afterwards “we shouldn’t have had to go through that.”

The Yas Marina incident has been covered by the FIA. “human error”Safety car policies were not properly adhered to. Even though the 2022 season is underway, the ill feeling is still very evident.

Interview with German publication BildWolff was also questioned “Who would you rather have from Red Bull in your team: Verstappen as driver, team boss Christian Horner or head of motorsport Dr. Helmut Marko?”Marko, 78 years old, is a Red Bull advisor who oversees the team’s development program.

Wolff’s reply was brutal: “I’d rather do it alone,”He said. He did not fire it the only time he was asked.

He was also asked about the top three drivers on the current roster. Verstappen, who is the world champion, implied that he doesn’t compare to the Mercedes men. “Hamilton, George Russell and Max Verstappen,”He said. “In this order.”

Russell, 24 years old, replaced Valtteri bottas at Silver Arrows at end of last season but has yet to win a Grand Prix. His fourth place finish last Sunday in Bahrain was his greatest points haul to date.

The new Netflix series Formula 1: Drive to Survive (version four) focuses on the frostiness of Wolff, 50, and Horner 48. One episode sees the Englishman mock his rival’s success.

“What you have to remember about Toto is he has inherited something that is already well-oiled,”Horner stated. “‘He has not had to build anything. He operates the team in a much different way to me.”

However, the primary focus of both team bosses is likely to be getting back on track in Saudi Arabia this Sunday. Mercedes was not at the pace in Bahrain. However, Russell and Hamilton finished third and fourth respectively.
