Toto Wolff calls out long time rival Christian Horner for 'harassment' in Belgian GP paddock | The SunJuly 31, 2023
TOTO WOLFF called out rival boss Christian Horner for "harrassment" in a hilarious incident at the Belgian Grand Prix.
The two have previously locked horns with both their teams competing fiercely to be crowned champion.
However, with Red Bull dominating the field thanks to Max Verstappen's imperious driving, Horner has had a relaxed and even jokey attitude towards his competitors.
And this was on full display when he crossed paths with Wolff in the F1 paddock after last weekend's race.
Following Verstappen's 10th win of the season – and his eighth in a row – Horner, 49, spotted Wolff giving an interview to Sky Sports.
As he walked past, Horner appeared to pinch the German who turned around in a startled response.

With the 51-year-old spotting Horner walking in the opposite direction he yelled: "That's harassment".
But there did not appear to be any animosity in the call, with Wolff seen smiling as he returned to the interview.
Wolff has been seen to be particularly animated in recent seasons when the racing has been at its most tense between Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.
The Brit missed out on a podium in the final race before the summer break after Verstappen breezed through the field despite his five-place grid penalty.

Hamilton – along with the rest of the field – has been unable to keep pace with Red Bull this so far this season, with only the Bulls second driver Sergio Perez able to win races asides from Verstappen.
However, the Dutchman's post-race celebrations in the last two weekends have ended in disaster with his trophy ending up smashed.
The first was saw Lando Norris bang his champagne bottle on the podium at the Hungarian Grand Prix, causing the trophy to smash into bits after falling to the floor.
But the latest incident saw Verstappen's trophy smashed by the jubilant celebrations of his Red Bull team.
