Red Bull team principal Christian Horner refutes allegations once more following an apparent SMS leak

Christian Horner, the team principal at Red Bull, has refuted claims of unsuitable conduct once more following the disclosure of many purported texts. Following an internal probe of his behavior with a female colleague, Horner was declared free on Wednesday. Personnel working with Formula 1 and the media received an anonymous email on Thursday that included a link to messages allegedly involving Horner. Horner added, “I won’t comment on anonymous speculation.” “But, to reiterate, I have always denied the allegations.” 149 persons connected in the sport received the email, which had a collection of messages on a link.

 

The statement further stated: “I respected the integrity of the independent investigation and fully co-operated with it every step of the way.”An independent specialized barrister carried out a comprehensive and impartial inquiry, which has resulted in the dismissal of the complaint. I’m still completely focused on the beginning of the season.” The parent company of the Formula One team, Red Bull GmbH, released the following statement on Thursday: “Red Bull would be inappropriate to comment on this as it is a private matter between Mr. Horner and another.” Regarding the internal investigation, Red Bull GmbH refused to provide any information. “Red Bull is confident that the investigation has been fair, rigorous, and impartial,” the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

 

“We will refrain from providing any additional comments out of respect for all parties involved, as the investigation report is secret and includes the private information of the parties and third parties who assisted in the inquiry. Red Bull will keep working to uphold the best standards in the workplace.” Toto Wolff and Zak Brown, the managers of Mercedes and McLaren, demanded greater openness from Red Bull over the probe on Thursday at the Bahrain Grand Prix. The regulatory body, the FIA, has been made aware of the texts and is currently in discussion with F1 management about the situation.
