Christian Horner has taken aim at Mercedes after the Silver Arrows called for changes to floor regulations. Red Bull have adapted well to the new rules that were implemented for the 2022 season and they sit top of the Constructors’ Championship by 82 points.

However, Mercedes have really struggled with porpoising and Lewis Hamilton and George Russell are yet to win a race. 

“Changing rules because a couple of teams haven’t managed to hit targets is never the right thing to do,” he told Eurosport. “If you want to have convergence in F1, the best thing to do is to leave it alone. Then all the teams will converge.

“What you would see next year, if the rules were left completely alone, I’d be surprised if you saw any bouncing because we’ve got some of the brightest engineers in the technical world solving these problems.

“These regulations are the biggest change we’ve had in 40 years. You can already see in recent races there’s not been any sign of some of the bouncing from earlier in the year.”

Ferrari have been Red Bull’s closest challengers this year with Charles Leclerc 63 points behind Verstappen in the Drivers’ Championship. However, the Monegasque ace has crashed while leading three races, leaving him with a big ask for the remainder of the campaign.
