Red Bull launches an investigation into Christian Horner following allegations of misconduct…



Red Bull is currently conducting an internal investigation into allegations of inappropriate behavior involving Christian Horner, the team principal.


This news comes at a crucial time, just a month before the start of the upcoming Formula One season. Christian Horner, a 50-year-old British individual, has been at the helm of Red Bull since 2005 and has played a significant role in securing 13 world titles for their Formula One team, including three consecutive Drivers’ Championships won by Max Verstappen.


Christian Horner, a 50-year-old British individual, has held the position of team principal at Red Bull since 2005. Under his leadership, Red Bull’s Formula One team has achieved an impressive record of 13 world titles, including three consecutive Drivers’ Championships won by the talented Max Verstappen.


The statement released by the energy drinks company regarding the allegations against Horner.


On Monday (February 5), the energy drinks company issued a statement addressing the allegations made against Christian Horner, who vehemently denies them. The company confirmed that an independent investigation has been initiated in response to these recent claims.


The statement stated, “Upon becoming aware of these specific allegations, the company promptly launched an independent investigation.” The investigation is currently underway and is being conducted by an external specialist barrister.


The company emphasizes its utmost seriousness in handling such matters and assures that the investigation will be concluded as soon as practically feasible. At this time, it is deemed inappropriate to provide further comments on the matter.


De Telegraaf, a Dutch publication, has reported that Christian Horner, the team principal of Red Bull Racing, has been accused of inappropriate behavior towards a specific team member. The accusations have been taken very seriously by Oliver Mintzlaff, the boss of Red Bull.


These allegations against Horner have surfaced just before the start of the new Formula One season, where Red Bull will be defending both the Drivers’ Championship and Constructors’ Championship titles.


In the previous season, Red Bull had an outstanding performance, with Horner leading the team to a dominant campaign, winning 21 out of the 22 races.


The impact of these allegations on Horner’s involvement in the upcoming season is still uncertain. However, it is worth noting that this season will be Lewis Hamilton’s last with Mercedes, as he has announced his departure from the team after 11 years to join Ferrari at the end of the 2024/25 season.


Next season, the Tifosi will witness the seven-time champion teaming up with Charles Leclerc, while Carlos Sainz’s future plans remain uncertain.


Meanwhile, Hamilton’s decision to stay with Mercedes ensures that all driver and team combinations from the 2023 season will remain intact for the start of the upcoming Formula One World Championship, marking a historic first.
