Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said the team will not protest the rear wing Mercedes used during the Brazilian Grand Prix.


  • Hamilton had been disqualified from the qualifying results due to an illegal rear wing.
  • Verstappen doubted Mercedes was complying with the technical regulations when it comes to wing flex, but Horner said he trusts the FIA.

What he said:

  • “We won’t be protesting at this race,” Horner told Sky Sports. “It’s important to understand where the speed has come from. Obviously, they’ve had a new engine here, they’re running Monaco levels of downforce.”
  • “Yet, when he passed Max, he was close to 30 kilometers an hour quicker on that lap, so it’s just something that we need to understand.”
  • “It’s down to the FIA to police the sport and to govern it. We trust in them and their tests and their investigation.”
