Formula 1 News: Mercedes and Red Bull are vying against each other literally everywhere, amidst the brutal battle for the championship. There is a certain degree of tense war of words in the intense competition.

And none of the two mentioned teams is settling to be below each other in this matter. The latest series of exchanges took off after Mercedes comprehensively defeated Red Bull in Brazil.

And then in Qatar. Red Bull believes that there is a certain degree of an illicit advantage their rivals are taking. Meanwhile, Mercedes is responding to that. So, it has been about claiming to be the righteous side.

Most of the arguments also stem from the decisions taken by the stewards and race directors. Whenever a side has been impacted by it, there has been a conflict between the two teams.

Formula 1 News: Never before it’s been so hostile

Horner claims there have been instances of his team vying with other sides, and never before it has been so dramatic. He cites the example of Ferrari, where according to him, things were more subtle.

Horner has constantly argued that since Mercedes has been challenged so intensively for the first time in this turbo-hybrid era, their frustrations are piling up, which Wolff has often laughed upon.

“When we were vying Ferrari or McLaren,” said Horner as per wwos. “Stefano [Domenicali] operated Ferrari back then and there was constantly a handshake, you know, followin gthe race. It was something else. This one has seemed very political off track.”

“The positioning, the posturing, the politicking of the regulatory body, of the drivers and units. Maybe we’ve been a bit simple because, for us, it’s been all about what’s happening on on the circuit. And then you notice, when you are under siege you have to protect.”

Formula 1 News: Christian Horner accuses Mercedes of manipulation

Horner claims that Mercedes has often exaggerated some messages disseminating from Red Bull’s end. He gives the example of the Red Bull boss’ recent marshal episode in Qatar.

“We don’t have enormous departments of media and manipulators in the background. So I’m defending off whatever is incoming. Whereas some teams work in a very distinct way. They’ll use their time, you understand, shaping a message,” he said.

“I guess possibly my remarks were used to become looked at a marshal who wasn’t the purpose. But you see, these things get turned around. They get spun, and they get distorted.

“Accidentally, where is the regularity? The prior weekend, [Mercedes] primarily told the race director to ‘go f–k himself’. My remarks appeared trivial by comparison.”
