” Most importantly, through this window here I can see the track,” said Horner.

” Other pit walls, not many of them, have that now. But I still am a little bit old-fashioned that I wanna see the car go past. Because sometimes, you can see if the driver is getting a run or if something is about to happen.” continued Horner.

The statement by Mercedes is a little antagonistic: Christian Horner

As reported by crash.net, Christian Horner has finally reacted to the official statement released by Mercedes regarding Red bull’s rejected right to review. Christian called the statement by the German team antagonistic and surprising.

“It’s never been anything personal about a single driver. It’s about the events that happened, and a competition between two guys, it’s not individual to any driver. If that had been any other driver, the reaction would have been identical. So I was a little surprised by the Mercedes comments.” said Horner.

Red Bull would look to bounce back in Hungary after their Silverstone failure.

Can Red Bull win in Hungary? Let us know.
