Horner makes clear statement to Mercedes: 'That also applies to Lewis'

Red Bull Racing and Mercedes are not only battling it out on track this season, they are also trying to thwart each other off-track. Christian Horner knows how a title fight goes and tells the BBC camera that he is not surprised about the way things are going.

"It's all part of the fight for the title," Horner noted.

The Red Bull team boss went on to compare this years battle to the legendary dual between Senna and Prost. "That also applies to Lewis, of course. This season's fight reminds me of the one between Prost and Senna. It's different generations pushing each other to the limit."
