Red Bull principal Christian Horner denies saying Mercedes F1 car illegal

Horner had been reported on Thursday saying he believed the design was illegal, but 24 hours later he insisted he made no such comment and that the Mercedes does indeed comply with the new rules introduced for the coming season. The controversy, which may yet roll on into the opening part of the season, centres on Mercedes’ radical design of its sidepods. A protest against the Mercedes concept could still be launched by other teams and it could yet be banned if eight of the 10 teams believe it is against the spirit of the new regulations. In the show, he is featured making pointed comments towards Wolff, Mercedes and Hamilton. Hamilton was in fourth, with his Mercedes teammate George Russell in 13th.
