Red Bull launch Horner investigation

Red Bull are conducting an investigation into team principal Christian Horner’s conduct after an allegation was made against him.

The 50-year-old, who has denied the claims, was the mastermind behind the team’s incredible 2023 season which saw them win 21 of the 22 races on the calendar and ended with Max Verstappen winning the title.

He has been with Red Bull since 2005 and has enjoyed enormous success – leading them to seven drivers’ titles and six constructors’ championships.

However, a complaint has now prompted an investigation with the team confirming in a statement: “After being made aware of certain recent allegations, the company launched an independent investigation.

“This process, which is already under way, is being carried out by an external specialist barrister. The company takes these matters extremely seriously and the investigation will be completed as soon as practically possible. 

“It would not be appropriate to comment further at this time.”

When asked about the allegations, Horner told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: “I completely deny these claims.”
