Red Bull seek retribution against Mercedes

The Red Bull Formula 1 team has now asked for an inspection to be into the front wings used by the Mercedes claiming the German outfit uses front wings that flex more than the RB16B's rear wing.

Christian Horner, the team principal of the Red Bull Formula 1 team has requested the FIA to review the front wings being used by Mercedes claiming there are images that prove the W12's front wings in Imola flexes more than the RB16B's rear wing.

There have been several accusations levelled at the Red Bull team regarding the legality of the rear wing present on the RB16B. The catalyst for this discussion came at the Spanish Grand Prix when reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton made a comment about Red Bull's flexible wing, stating it gave them a three-tenth advantage. The FIA eventually deemed there would be stricter controls that monitor the flexibility of the rear wings being used this season, forcing Red Bull to make changes that would cost the Milton Keynes-based outfit approximately $500,000. Horner however is formulating a plan to strike back.

"It would only be fair if the FIA ​​applied the same standard to the front wings," Horner told Auto Motor und Sport.

"There are photos of Imola in which the Mercedes front wing bends more than our rear wing. Mercedes pushed the thing with the rear wings, that is part of the game in Formula 1.

"Mercedes cares more about the affairs of other teams than anyone else in the field."

Horner also took one final dig at Mercedes saying a front-wing redevelopment would cost the same as Red Bull's rear wing bill if done to proper standards.

"More than half a million (dollars), at least according to our standards," Horner commented when asked about how much of a financial burden a front wing redevelopment would cost.

The rivalry between Mercedes and Red Bull is quickly becoming one of the hottest storylines of the season. Not only are the teams locked in a battle for the driver and constructor's championship but the off-track drama is just as enthralling with Red Bull poaching Mercedes' employees and the Brackley-based team forcing the aforementioned wing change.
