The verbal battles between Toto Wolff, Christian Horner and Helmut Marko, respectively director of Mercedes F1, director and advisor of Red Bull, go beyond the limits. McLaren manager Andreas Seidl thinks that the title rivals should respect each other.
« If you look at everything that is going on right now, it is obvious that there are a lot of issues at stake » Seidl explained. « It’s different from the battles we fight further, and it’s obviously great, to a degree, for the fans. »
« It’s good for the show, because at the end of the day it has to be entertainment too. But I think some of the comments we’ve seen in the last few weeks are not something I could have imagined coming from. of us in such a situation. «
« I think it is very important, no matter if you are fighting for the victories or if you are last, to always have respect for your competitors, for the FIA and for F1. »
According to him, Horner crossed the limits of the acceptable by attacking a marshal: « We’re in this together, and it’s important that there is respect for the volunteers who help us organize these race weekends. »
