Christian Horner has revealed a “heated alternate” with Components 1 rival Toto Wolff passed off on the 2021 British Grand Prix.

On the Silverstone occasion, Horner’s driver Max Verstappen began on pole with Wolff’s Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton second.

Approaching Copse on the primary lap, Hamilton ducked to the within of the fast-right hander, however he and Verstappen collided – pitching the Pink Bull into the barrier with an impression of over 50g.

Hamilton was given a time penalty, however nonetheless gained as Verstappen was taken for precautionary checks in hospital.

It was the primary on-track flashpoint between the 2 title rivals – with Horner saying it additionally boiled over between the 2 crew principals.

Horner vs Wolff

Previous to the British GP, it had been a slightly cordial championship battle between the 2 groups, though Pink Bull had been adamant Hamilton ought to have acquired a harsher penalty – with former Worldwide Components 3000 driver Horner saying the seven-time Components 1 World Champion drove “like an novice.”

The 2 drivers would additionally collide in Italy and in Saudi Arabia earlier than the controversial ending to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – however Silverstone was the place issues lastly boiled over.

“It actually permeated at Silverstone the place all of the sudden there was an terrible lot of dialogue from Toto to [then race director] Michael [Masi],” Horner advised Tom Clarkson on the F1: Past the Grid podcast.

“Then he is (Wolff) sending him an electronic mail, after which he is arising. And I believed: ‘Proper, okay, I am not having that, I am going up.’ B

“I felt it was extremely one sided {that a} crew principal shouldn’t be in a position to foyer and affect the race director and with hindsight, Toto and I had a reasonably heated alternate in Race Management.

“At that occasion, the place Toto was clearly arguing his nook that his driver should not be penalised, and I’ve received a driver in hospital and the automobile taken out of the race and was clearly feeling fairly aggrieved by it.”

Horner regrets pushing for crew radio to FIA

Horner additionally admitted that he was one of many huge pushers behind introducing the FIA-pit-wall crew radio that featured in 2021, debuting on the Spanish Grand Prix.

Nonetheless, each Wolff and Horner used it all through the season to foyer Masi – evident within the season-finale in Abu Dhabi.

However whereas he regrets pushing for it, Horner doesn’t imagine it had an impression on Masi’s decision-making behind the security automobile within the 2021 finale.

“I used to be in all probability responsible, as a result of I used to be pushing for it inside the technique conferences and fee conferences to say that ‘There’s an terrible lot of intercom that goes on, that I believe the spectators ought to concentrate on.’

“That is primarily between the crew managers and the referee, and, the results of that’s that hopefully, he could get much less of it, however I believe it might be a captivating alternate, as a result of the crew supervisor is just going to name up the race director, in the event that they really feel they have one thing actually robust to argue they are not going to bitch about one thing that is pretty trivial.

“And it was in Barcelona that Sunday, I hear they broadcast Toto on the cellphone to Michael, I believed: ‘That is a bit unusual. I by no means had a one to 1 channel, it at all times been despatched it via our crew supervisor.’

“After that race, I believe we should always have stated: ‘Proper, you already know what, there ought to solely be one communication between the race director and crew managers.’

“At that time, the competitiveness, you develop into so pushed, that it is solely pure, you are going to do the perfect that you may to your crew.

“I assume that got here to no larger head in Abu Dhabi, the place Toto at a number of factors through the race was making an attempt to not get a Security Automotive, they did not need us making an attempt to steer the course of the race.

“As quickly as you hear that, as a result of I get that transmission, My fast response is, defence, I need to make sure that my greatest type of defence is assault to say as a result of the worst factor is final particular person in someone’s ear has the best affect.

“I believe that the important thing issue was [Nicholas] Latifi crashing, and there being a comparatively easy Security Automotive with an quantity of laps left, with a precedence of being let’s get the race going once more.

“The one mistake made was to not let the 2 ultimate vehicles unlap themselves – it might not have made an oz of distinction, the result would have been an identical to what occurred.”
