Christian Horner to Mercedes team: Tell them to bitch as much as they could

There was almost no race this season in which Mercedes and its drivers did not complain about porpoising problems. However, Red Bull boss Christian Horner believes Mercedes is playing the game "Tell them to bitch as much as they could over the radio and make as big an issue out of it as they possibly could.

"It is part of the game." Horner answered the question; Does he think that's what his rivals are doing: "Of course it is. "Look, it is uncomfortable but there are remedies to that but it is detrimental to the car performance.

"What is the easiest thing to do? Complain from a safety point of view but each team has a choice. "If it was a genuine safety concern across the whole grid then it is something that should be looked at but if it is only affecting isolated people or teams, then that is something that the team should potentially deal with."

Regulations

Whether he would accept any changes to the regulations if safety concerns continue to grow, Horner had something to say: "They could always stick a bigger plank on it if they wanted. "The easiest thing is obviously to raise the car so a team has a choice to do that.

You have a choice where you run your car and you should never run a car that is unsafe." He thinks it would be unfair to punish some. "But I think that is more for the technical guys because there are certain cars that have some issues and certain cars with very few issues.

"It would seem unfair to penalise the ones who have done a decent job versus the ones who have perhaps missed the target slightly." The race between Red Bull and Mercedes continues, although this season Red Bull is much better and far ahead of them.

It is a difficult season for both teams, and we will see if Red Bull can reach the title this season as well. They have a great team and great drivers, but sometimes that’s not enough.
