New battlefield opens between Red Bull, Mercedes

A “new battlefield” has opened up in Mercedes’ championship fight with Red Bull. “Red Bull needs people for its project,” Mercedes’ Toto Wolff said. And Mercedes has now opened fire in that new battlefield, according to Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko. “When people are in one place for a long time, I think they want new challenges and that’s understandable,” said the Red Bull driver. At the same time, the latest developments have only increased the already strong likelihood that Verstappen intends to stay at the championship-contending team. The engine saga isn’t the only tension between Mercedes and Red Bull at present. “We want to see the details before we vote,” said Marko. At the same time, Red Bull is arguing that a new budget cap be brought down on engine costs. “It should be well below $100 million,” Marko said.
