Mercedes F1 boss Toto Wolff has strongly denied cheating after rival team Red Bull Racing asked for clarification over a possible breach of regulations.

Red Bull's team principal, Christian Horner, wrote to the sport's governing body, the FIA, earlier this month, seeking clarity about rules on burning oil as a fuel to gain extra power during qualifying.
