(F1) Merc Boss -  Fierce and Controversial Rivalry Inevitable

The Mercedes Boss Toto Wolff said it was just a "a matter of time until the rivalry would eventually become more fierce and controversial" adding that rivalries such as Mercedes -  Ferrari has always been present in every Formula One season.

The Boss also added that the Mercedes team has moved on from the Hamilton -  Vettel incident in the Azerbaijan GP calling it a "closed chapter" says Mercedes' focus over the last two weeks has been on ensuring they do not suffer a similar issue with their headrests.

"Every great Formula One season is marked by a great rivalry," Wolff said.

"Last year it was our internal battle between Lewis and Nico and this year it seems that the fight is on between Ferrari and Mercedes and Lewis and Sebastian.
"As calm as it started, it was only a matter of time until the rivalry would eventually become more fierce and controversial. That moment happened in Baku and we saw the results of that tension on track.

"We have moved passed that moment now and it is a closed chapter. The hearing on Monday was between the FIA and Sebastian and it reached the conclusion we have all seen.. 

"Our focus since Baku has been on our own shortcomings, reviewing both the design and procedures around our headrest which cost Lewis the win two weeks ago."

Concerning The Mercedes - Ferrari Rivalry

"There is great respect between Mercedes and Ferrari, two iconic motor racing brands, not only because of the challenging battle on track but because we are pushing for the same goal: to see Formula One flourish," he added.

"The new owners could hardly have asked for a better start to this new era than this epic battle between Mercedes and Ferrari.

"Add to the mix a Red Bull team that can win as well and it makes Formula One into a great spectacle."
