Mercedes boss Toto Wolff accuses Red Bull’s Christian Horner of using ‘reverse psychology’ in his defence over his team’s spending – after F1 chief said he was ‘appalled’ by accusations in leaked letter to FIA

Red Bull chief Christian Horner has been accused of using ‘reverse psychology’ as he continues to rebuke cheating allegations, according to Mercedes boss Toto Wolff. Many say Red Bull’s mistakeĀ ā€˜constituted cheatingā€™, which Horner hit back at and said those claims were ‘tremendously disappointing’, but now Wolff claims the F1 chief is trying to play victim. He made reference to reports that Red Bull’s catering budget was a large factor in their overspend. It has yet to be announced what punishment Red Bull face, though it is understood it will be both financial and sporting. Spectators chanted ā€˜cheater, cheaterā€™ at Red Bull’s Verstappen when he attended a fan event prior to qualifying.
