Red Bull won’t trigger Baku protests

Mercedes will have to pull the trigger on a round of protests this weekend at Baku, according to title rival Red Bull’s F1 supremo Dr Helmut Marko. With Toto Wolff threatening to lodge a protest against Red Bull’s allegedly ‘bendy’ rear wing, fellow Austrian Marko has warned that the energy drink-owned team is prepared to return fire with a complaint about the Mercedes’ front wing. “It won’t escalate from my side,” Marko told Sport1. Marko also poked fun at Wolff for accepting an honorary doctorate in science from Cranfield University in England last month. Marko, who has a doctorate in law, could not resist aiming a jibe at his countryman and rival.
