Toto Wolff has called on Red Bull to change their language, saying their personal attacks on Lewis Hamilton have “not seen in this sport before”.
The rivalry between Red Bull and Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, reached fever pitch at the British Grand Prix when the title protagonists tangled.
Fighting for position on the opening, Hamilton tried to pass Verstappen up the inside at Copse, connected with the Red Bull’s rear wheel, and sent Verstappen flying into the tyre barrier.
The Dutchman was bruised and battered, suffering a sore neck, and his RB16B was destroyed. With an impact of 51G, and a crash that Helmut Marko reckons a “normal person” would not have survived, Red Bull are fuming.
