Mercedes chief Toto Wolff hits back at Red Bull's Christian Horner – 'I find it worrying’

“I very much want to be on the front line, sitting on the pit wall with the strategists and the engineers, while Toto is in the garage next to the press guy. 

“It’s different functions, different roles, different outlooks, but the competition is fierce. That’s the key thing about this championship. 

“We’re loving the competition and the more Toto gets wound up, the more fun it becomes.”

Yet Wolff believes the comments were quite concerning and didn’t share Horner’s passion, but concluded he doesn’t actually feel that “wound-up” this season.

“No, not at all,” Wolff told Channel 4. “That he thinks about these things is a bit worrying,” he said.
