Christian Horner’s F1 future at stake in crucial Friday meeting with investigator

On Friday at an undisclosed location believed to be in central London, Horner will sit down with an English KC, appointed by Red Bull Racing’s parent company, the drinks manufacturer Red Bull GmbH, and face questioning on the allegations made by a female employee that he used what is understood to have been described as “controlling” behaviour in his interactions with her. Horner has already emphatically denied any wrongdoing but must now provide substantive arguments to verify his claim. It took Horner as much by surprise as the rest of the paddock when Red Bull Racing’s parent company announced on Monday it had opened an investigation into the team principal and was unequivocal that it had every intent to deal with the matter properly. Red Bull Racing have made no formal comment since the announcement and Horner too has not commented beyond the statement that “I completely deny these claims” he made on Monday. Before the death of the founder of Red Bull, Dietrich Mateschitz, in October of 2022 the owner was happy to leave Horner running the entire show. Horner has reigned over a period of extraordinary success for Red Bull racing as they have won six constructors’ world championships and seven drivers’ titles.
