The radio rule is complete rubbish – Horner

Red Bull F1 team boss, Christian Horner has says that the ban on F1 radio messages as “complete rubbish”, he says teams have to “play to the rules.”

Championship leader Nico Rosberg’s British Grand Prix second place under investigation following the FIA confirmed that it would be investigating radio messages to his car towards the end of the race at Silverstone.

“The rule is complete rubbish, that sort of thing should be allowed,” he told Sky Sports F1. “There were loads of messages we wanted to give our drivers today. You have to play to the rules.”

He added: “It is obviously with the stewards so it is up to them to decide. I suppose the question they will be asking is ‘what would have happened if they hadn’t instructed him in what to do’?

“He came past us very, very slowly and obviously the instruction tidied up whatever the issue was with an engine mode and a gearbox position. That, as the rules are written today, isn’t right but it is with the stewards, it is for them to decide.”

Sky Sports reported that, Horner has just been talking to the written media and has claimed stewards are looking into two possible rules breaches by Mercedes over the radio.

The first is supposed to concern the message over the switch configuration, with the second the message telling Rosberg to miss out seventh gear.

Red Bull stands most to gain from any Rosberg time penalty given Verstappen would be lifted to second place.
