Toto Wolff trolls ‘obsessed’ Horner and says ‘I live in his head rent free’

Toto Wolff claims he lives in Christian Horner's head "rent free" in a fresh swipe at his fierce Red Bull rival.

Mercedes boss Wolff has kicked off a 2023 F1 rivalry with Horner already by saying the 'guy is obsessed'. The duo have added fuel to the fire on race weekends with their disputes across the paddock in recent seasons.

And the rivalry came to a head in 2021 when Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen were embroiled in a dramatic title battle. The duo fired shots at each other in an enthralling season, but the rivalry simmered in 2022 as Red Bull dominated amidst a Mercedes slump.

But Wolff confirmed that the rivalry with Horner is still as intense as ever as he described a relationship with the long-term Red Bull chief as a 'waste of time'.

"I am living in his head rent free. The guy is obsessed," Wolff said in a new interview with The Times. "Every second that I spend on talking about Horner is a waste of time in my life.”

F1 fans will hope for a repeat of the unmissable Red Bull vs Mercedes showdown again this year, with lights out on the new season in Bahrain on March 5.

Who will come out on top in 2023 – Wolff or Horner? Let us know in the comments section below.

But while tensions have spilled over in the F1 furnace, passionate Wolff insists he truly finds the most joy in life with his family.

"I have great moments in F1. I love the team, I love the challenge. But what I really love is my family," he added. I have three children, who are 21, 18, and five years old.

"Having the family together is what gives me the greatest enjoyment. And with my wife [Susie] I have found the perfect partner.

"My wife can drive cars faster than I. But that is the least of her attributes. We are total soulmates."
