Given that Mark & Horner have a team owner relationship in GP3 it seems strange that Horner would make this statement, methinks it is Horner trying to be neutral or typical press bias. Mark himself obviously has DM support given RB sponsorship for his Porsche role.

This is the equivalent of not giving your employer 2 weeks notice, when you get a better job and really want to stick it to them, because you never felt like you were treated fairly there and you hated your coworker.

It was Webbers way of showing Horner that Dietrich was his boss. And Freejack, mark has not left the red bull family. They are providing the money for his new effort. If anything it should chap Horners backside that Mark showed the world that Horner had NOTHING to do with him being in F1. He always had Dietrich as his ace in the hole.

Rob whilst Mark remains a member of of the Red Bull Family the extent of Personal Financial Support to Porsche only surrounds Helmut design.

Porsche wanted Mark.

Mark wanted Porsche.

D.M. wanted acknowledgement
