Mercedes chief Toto Wolff slams Red Bull for ‘below the belt’ Lewis Hamilton complaints

Mercedes chief Toto Wolff slams Red Bull for ‘below the belt’ Lewis Hamilton complaints

In a similar vein, Red Bull team advisor Helmut Marko called for the Brit to serve a one-race suspension.

A brief hiatus in the tensions was next after Hamilton was subjected to racist abuse on social media, which Red Bull publicly denounced in solidarity with the 36-year-old.

However, once the dust settled, Horner had more choice words for Hamilton via his column, stating: “The reality is that Hamilton has met his match in a car that is now competitive, and I agree that both drivers need to show each other respect, but Hamilton was the aggressor on Sunday.”

Clearly there is still anger in both camps after they experienced drastically differing weekends at Silverstone.
