McLaren F1 chief Zak Brown calls out Mercedes boss Toto Wolff for Las Vegas BOXING MATCH at Australian GP | The SunApril 8, 2023
MCLAREN chief Zak Brown has sensationally challenged Toto Wolff to a BOXING MATCH in Las Vegas.
Following the chaotic Australian Grand Prix, Brown was in a jubilant mood as Lando Norris and homeboy Oscar Piastri scored their first points of the season.
And while speaking to Sky Sports, the McLaren CEO issued a challenge towards Red Bull's Christian Horner and Mercedes chief Wolff.
He said: "We were talking about racing Christian in Silverstone, because I used to race against Christian.
"And I've talked to Toto about it, we'll see if he's up for it.
"When we go Vegas, what's Vegas known for? [A] Little boxing match? I'm ready."
