Red Bull Racing has provided an update on Christian Horner’s statement regarding Mercedes’ 2022 F1 challenger.

Earlier on Thursday, there were reports that Horner questioned the legality of Mercedes’ W13 car after they had introduced a ‘no sidepod’ concept.

“The new Mercedes violates the spirit of the regulations. For us, some parts are not legal,” he was quoted by Auto Motor und Sport.

However, later on, Red Bull dismissed those claims.

“Christian Horner has not given any interviews regarding Mercedes’ car. Any quotes being attributed to him this morning are incorrect,” the statement read.
