I think this is the great thing about the innovation in Formula One. ‘But I think, as it’s understood more, and the FIA really as the regulators will know everything that’s going on there. ‘We don’t as Formula One because we’re not entitled to have that information, but the regulators will know everything that’s going on. Red Bull then made a statement saying: ‘Christian Horner has not given any interviews regarding Mercedes’ car.
