Although Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff and Red Bull team boss Christian Horner often don’t see eye to eye, Wolff says he respects his rival.
The war of words between Mercedes and Red Bull is as strong as their battle on the track, however, Toto Wolff says this doesn’t impact his respect for Red Bull team boss Christian Horner.
“I think the job that Christian has done is very good,” the Austrian said.
“He was the youngest team principal to have won a world championship, he’s done four in a row.
“The team has always been our strongest competitor, and for that reason we are fighting gloves-off on the track for any millimetre of political advantage.

“But I have respect for the person.”
Wolff adds he is happy to finally have strong opposition on the track.
“Yes, we love the battle. It’s just what the doctor ordered after the past seven years. We also like that Ferrari was in the game [at the Monaco Grand Prix].
“And no doubt McLaren we will see performing in qualifying and the race,” concluded Mercedes’ team boss.
