Christian Horner accuses Mercedes of telling Lewis Hamilton to ‘b****’ as much as possible about his back pain during the Azerbaijan GP… as the Red Bull chief insists it would be ‘unfair’ for F1 officials to change safety rules over porpoising complaints

Red Bull chief Christian Horner has accused Mercedes of telling Lewis Hamilton to ‘b****’ as much as possible about the back pain he suffered in Sunday’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Horner fears Mercedes are dressing Hamilton’s injury up as a safety issue to force a rule change, which he believes would be ‘unfair’ on teams who spent money to eradicate similar problems with their cars. ‘The easiest thing is obviously to raise the car so a team has a choice to do that,’ he said. ‘You have a choice where you run your car and you should never run a car that is unsafe. But I think that is more for the technical guys because there are certain cars that have some issues and certain cars with very few issues.
