In Qatar, Toto Wolff and Christian Horner confirmed that they are not friends. The latter went the extra mile and said he “doesn’t have to kiss his ass or anything like that”, a situation the Mercedes team boss should not think about and would like to forget as soon as possible.
“You don’t do anything with that”, Wolff replies as OE24 asks him how he should respond to such a comment. The Austrian team boss laughs at his Red Bull rival’s comment. “That image must in any case be removed from my retina quickly.”
Wolff calls all upcoming achievements ‘a bonus’
With two races to go, it is very exciting in the 2021 title fight. Wolff believes in Mercedes’ performance, although he does not immediately put Mercedes in the favorites role. “We have the speed in our car and we have the right spirit to fight to the end. Nobody expected that we could keep it open. Everything that comes now is a bonus and we enjoy every minute of it .”
Lewis Hamilton is also enjoying the championship to the fullest. After strong victories in Brazil and Qatar, the Briton seems to be getting closer to a title. “We are close behind them and came from much further away. If we win this title it would be great. If we lose the others have deserved it and we are looking to next year,” said Wolff.
