Rumors have been swirling in the world of Formula 1. The buzz was all about a supposed link between Toto Wolff and Susie Wolff. However, it’s been made clear by the F1 teams that no one has spilled the beans to the FIA about this.
The story goes that Toto Wolff, the Mercedes team boss, had allegedly shared some classified info with Ms. Wolff. Christian Horner, however, has made it clear that Red Bull had zilch to do with this. Not a thing.
Horner’s Take on the Wolff Situation
Horner had a chat with Sky Sports about the whole thing. “We’ve got a big rivalry with Mercedes on the track, but we haven’t lodged any official complaints about Susie, Toto, or Mercedes to the FIA,” he said. Red Bull, he pointed out, has been pretty involved with the F1 Academy since it started.
In fact, between the two Red Bull-owned teams, they’re planning to enter three cars in 2024. They’ve been working closely with Susie, who’s been doing a bang-up job on the F1 Academy. So, this whole thing came as a bit of a surprise.
Horner continued, “The statement that came out last night caught us off guard. Red Bull didn’t instigate it, didn’t need it, didn’t set it off. We’ve not lodged any official complaints or made any requests to the FIA or FOM.”
Horner recently celebrated his 50th birthday, post the Formula One season. The guest list was a who’s who of sports and music, including F1 legend Bernie Ecclestone. But the Mercedes team boss was conspicuously absent. Despite mutual respect, there’s no real friendship there yet.
