1 | Ralf Schumacher on Red Bull: “The unrest in the team is great”

Ralf Schumacher commented on Red Bull before the start of the new Formula 1 season. There is unrest in the team due to the Horner case.

In the still unresolved matter surrounding Red Bull’s team boss Christian Horner, Formula 1 expert Ralf Schumacher would not assume that the world champion team would experience a sporting slump in the event of a possible separation. “Because the structures are in place,” the former racing driver told the German Press Agency before the start of the season next weekend with the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The 48-year-old said the question of how much the turmoil could pose a threat to defending champion Max Verstappen was very difficult to answer: “The unrest in the team is relatively great and you can hear that there was also trouble behind the scenes. The question is whether people are so divided that they can’t actually work together anymore.”

Horner is accused of inappropriate behavior

So far there has been no decision on Horner. The longest-serving team boss in the premier motorsport class is accused of inappropriate behavior by an employee. Details are not known. The parent company Red Bull commissioned an independent law firm to investigate. The 50-year-old Horner rejected the allegations.

“For Max Verstappen, who has elementary confidants in his father Jos and Red Bull’s motorsport advisor Helmut Marko, it is important that nothing changes for him among the technicians and engineers,” emphasized Ralf Schumacher, with a view to a change at the top of the team that cannot be ruled out .
