In the Formula 1 show TOTOT Wolff and Christian Horner have long been the main actor. Although Hollywood entertainment on the asphalt ensures your pilots Lewis Hamilton and Max in the World Cup duel. But beyond the borders, the two team bosses also provide headlines. The Entertainment Motor Formula 1 runs highly touring, after all, the inner life of the streaming service Netflix is also illuminated with its own documentary.
Wolff: You start to behave like little actors
People have a microphone in front of themselves or a camera on themselves and started to behave like little actor, as in Hollywood, said Wolff of the Daily Mail in the interview in front of the Grand Prix of Mexico this weekend. That s good for sports and good for Netflix, because they want to portray people, not just the stopwatch.
Every show, every SOAP, is just as good as your performers. One, Wolff, is team boss from industry primey Mercedes, boss of the World Cup Hamilton, decorated with seven designers and driver titles one after the other. No other team boss in the history of the motorsport premier class can show such a series.
The other, Horner, is team boss from challenger Red Bull, stapping boss of World Cup leader, in which era with Sebastian Vettel from 2010 to 2013 decorated with four constructors and driver titles one after the other. So successful Wolff and Horner are so intimately connected, they are each other in their resentment.
Horner: I really want to be at the forefront
I think we respect, but I also believe, we work in a very different way, Horner said, who wants to finally break the continuous domination of the silver arrows in this season. I really want to stand at the forefront. I sit on the box wall with the strategists and the engineers, Toto sits in the garage next to the Pressemann. There are different functions, different roles, different views.
Horner initiated his statements elegantly, only to use then. What the man of the former Spice Girls Geri Halliwell wanted to say: I put my focus on car and tactics, the other on PR and image. I feel that he is one of the protagonists in a pantomime, part of the formula 1 cast, said Wolff, for me as a partner, as a team owner, it is great that he writes this kind of stories.
Between the British Horner (47) and the Austrian Wolff (49) it had already crowned this season. In the design quest for the legality of wings had Horner, who is still red-bull-motor sport adviser Helmut Marko, to the side in terms of dispute culture, at the beginning of June in Baku his rivals, prefer to keep his mouth.
Wolff: Christian is quite a chatter
Wolff, who lacks Niki Lauda s long-term team supervision council of Niki Lauda, etched: Christian is quite a chatter who likes to stand in front of the camera. Wolff later said he should not have took care. He was rude and I reacted, but that does not matter to me and I do not pay attention, said the Mercedes team boss.
Wolff finds that formula 1 resembles the times of the longtime chief marker Bernie Ecclestone. In many ways, we return to our roots, for what Bernie Ecclestone has created at the time were Racing and soap opera. And if there was not enough racing, he made soap opera, Wolff said.
Horner: The more TOTO upset, the more fun it s
All the stitches, all the Zoff - as drivers try to get out of balance and to mislead errors, also tries the leadership staff of the racing stables. Especially when it comes to the World Cup. It s the first time Mercedes and Toto are in a situation where they are needed to be challenged, Horner said recently Channel 4 over the expected title fight until the season finale. We love the competition, and the more TOTO upset, the more fun it s.
