Investigation against Red Bull team boss Horner nearing completion?

Will Christian Horner remain Red Bull team boss or will he have to go? According to a report, there will soon be an answer to this question.

There could be movement in the Christian Horner case at Red Bull. As the “Times” in England reported, according to its own information, the Formula 1 racing team is said to want to speed up investigations into alleged inappropriate behavior by the team boss “in order to end the unwanted media attention and uncertainty”. There were initially no official statements about this.

The independent investigation into Horner is likely to be completed soon, the Times reported. The official Formula 1 test drives will take place from this Wednesday until Friday. The first Grand Prix of the year will take place on March 2nd in Bahrain.

Horner: “I have faith in the process”

The parent company Red Bull initiated an “independent investigation” against team boss Horner at the beginning of February. He is accused of inappropriate behavior. An external specialist lawyer had the Brit, the longest-serving team boss in the premier motorsport class, give his opinion during an hour-long conversation in London.

“I have confidence in the process and firmly reject every accusation that has been made,” Horner said at the presentation of Red Bull’s new Formula 1 car in Milton Keynes last Thursday. “I have never seen the team as united and full of support as it is now.”

The parent company Red Bull is taking the incident very seriously. Now Ford, the engine partner of the Formula 1 racing team from 2026, also commented. “As a family business and a company that holds itself to very high standards of behavior and integrity, we expect the same from our partners,” explained Ford -Sports director Mark Rushbrook. “We have the impression, and we have also been told this, that Red Bull is taking the situation very seriously. And of course they are also concerned about their brand.”
