Zoff in the series!
In Formula 1, the conflict between teams over bouncing (cars jumping on the track) has been on the rise – and is now even more so. According to a report in Sport1, media giant Netflix is also losing weight now!
Toxic darts took off during a Canadian race last weekend, after the World Federation Fia issued a technical directive (TD039) aimed at limiting bouncing.
Some racing teams, including Red Bull, have criticized Mercedes, which is suffering the most from the problem, after Silver Arrows asked the Fia to intervene. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff then countered that the statements were “pathetic”. but that’s not all!
Now Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has fired directly at Wolff – and accused his counterpart of exaggerated presence and other intentions.
At a team meeting in Canada on the subject, there were “elements of theatre”, Horner said of the meeting, which also included a Netflix camera crew filming Drive to Survive. “Lewis has a new movie coming out. Maybe he gets a role.”
Netflix’s troubles in Formula 1
And another team boss criticizes a filmed team meeting. “The fact that Netflix certainly contributed to my reluctance to say nothing,” Alpine boss Otmar Szafner said in Sport 1 reports.
And further: “Does it create drama that wouldn’t exist otherwise? I don’t know. (…) I’m sure people will assume it has an effect. And maybe it is.”
