Horner’s future must be ‘clarified soon’ — F1

By Razeen Gutta

Formula One has called for the future of Red Bull principal Christian Horner to be clarified as soon as possible after allegations of “inappropriate behaviour” were laid against him by a female colleague. 

An F1 spokesperson said that no further comments would be issued while Red Bull continues its investigation. 

“We have noted that Red Bull has instigated an independent investigation into internal allegations at Red Bull Racing,” the spokesperson said, according to The Guardian.

“We hope that the matter will be clarified at the earliest opportunity, after a fair and thorough process, and we will not comment further at this time.” 

Horner spoke to the media at Red Bull Racing’s car launch on Thursday. 

The 50-year-old said he would be in Bahrain for the season opener on 2 March. 

“Yes. I will be in Bahrain. The process has been going on in the background. There’s been a day job to be getting on with, which is gearing up for the season ahead of us,” he said. 

“I have a hugely supportive family, a very supportive wife. I have felt the support from within the business and our partners and the support from within the industry has been overwhelming, too.

“I am confident in the process, which I have fully complied with and will continue to do so, and deny any of the allegations that have been made against me. For me, it is business as normal. If it wasn’t, I wouldn’t be here.”
