Christian Horner says Toto Wolff was wrong to call Jos Verstappen and instruct him to tell son Max not to interfere in the championship battle between Mercedes drivers.Ahead of this weekends Brazilian Grand Prix, Mercedes boss Wolff advised Verstappen Snr his son should not be reckless when battling Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton in the final two races. Verstappen and championship leader Rosberg made contact at Turn 1 of the Mexican Grand Prix but both men continued without major damage, though it could have had a big impact on the title battle.Horner admits he was taken aback to hear the call had been made.Jos told me that when he got here on Thursday and I was just a bit surprised that Toto called a drivers father from another team, Horner told Sky Sports. I was a bit surprised hearing that. I am not a team principal calling another teams drivers father. Obviously Toto would and felt the need to do so!Im not planning on calling Lewis dad and I dont know Keke [Rosberg]s number, so nothing here to get involved into.Horner says Mercedes can have a race of its own if it is so worried about other drivers getting involved in the title fight.I think its total rubbish, really. If Toto wants a race just for his drivers, we can have that 11 oclock tomorrow, and then we can have the grand prix at 2 when everyone [else] can race.Its not like Max is a backmarker. The guys -- both Max and Daniel [Ricciardo] -- are going to be doing the best they can for the best result they can, thats what were paying them for. Of course theres a world championship battle going on but thats between those relevant drivers and our interest is to do the best we can in this race, as in any other.Joe Ledley Jersey .
