“Just get your f****** head down!” – Mercedes and Red Bull supremos Toto Wolff vs Christian Horner collide verbally for Netflix’s F1 special Drive to Survive: Season 3, premiering today.
Red Bull and Mercedes have combined won the last 11 Constructors and Drivers Championships, with Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, and Sebastian Vettel the victors. This dominance can be gauged by the fact that these two were the only teams to win championships last decade, leaving Ferrari empty-handed.
And as such, the verbal spats and strategic attacks are commonplace between them, with team principals Toto Wolff and Christian Horner leading the charge.

Wolff dishes it out to Horner in ‘Drive to Survive S3’
From Mercedes’ unprecedented dominance to the objection over DAS, Red Bull doesn’t leave any opportunity to take on the German giants. This irks Wolff, and he lets it out on his counterpart in the highly-anticipated Season 3 of Netflix’s Drive to Survive, premiering today.
“Christian likes to rumble around a little bit, but I think we are doing it a bit differently. We concentrate on ourselves. We don’t look too much left and right and do the talking on the track.
“If you try to beat each other and perform at the highest level and then you need equalization after the first race, you cry out after the first race, that’s not how we’ve done things in the past.
“I think ‘just get your f****** head down, work hard and try to sort it out’. I didn’t mean the F-word in relation to him [Horner]. There is this wall in Jerusalem that you can stand in front of and complain about. Maybe the guys should go there.”
