Andreas Seidl has shared his thoughts regarding the war of words regarding the championship rivals Mercedes and Red Bull Racing.

Why it matters: As the season reaches its finale, both Mercedes and Red Bull Racing representatives make more controversial statements.


  • Seidl admits that the stakes in the title battle are quite high.
  • At the same time, the McLaren team principal believes that respect to each other and the officials should be shown.

What he had to say:

  • “If you watch everything which is ongoing at the moment, it is clear, obviously, there’s a lot at stake. “It’s different to the battles we are in further back, and is obviously great to a certain degree for the fans, and for the show, because in the end it should be entertainment as well.”
  • “But I definitely think that some of the comments we’ve seen in recent weeks, it’s definitely not something I could imagine would come from us in such a situation.”
  • “I think it’s very important, and it doesn’t matter if you fight for wins, or if you are last, that you always keep respect for the competitors, for the FIA, for F1.”
