Red Bull dismisses complaint against team boss Christian Horner

The Red Bull Group apparently sees no evidence of improper behavior by its Formula 1 team boss Christian Horner. A corresponding complaint was dismissed. The company announced this on Wednesday afternoon.

This is the result of the “independent investigation” carried out by a lawyer into the allegations against Horner, which was commissioned at the beginning of February. The 50-year-old Brit will remain in office for the time being. Horner was accused of behaving in a cross-border manner towards an employee

Red Bull is “convinced that the investigation was fair, thorough and unbiased,” and the report is confidential. The “complaining party” has the right to appeal.

Formula 1 pushed for quick clarification

On February 5th, Red Bull announced the allegations and announced that an independent external lawyer would investigate. According to media reports, Horner was interviewed on the matter for several hours four days later. Details were not provided by the parent company, where the former CEO of Bundesliga club RB Leipzig, Oliver Mintzlaff, has been one of the managing directors and has been responsible for the company’s entire sports program since the death of company founder Dietrich Mateschitz in October 2022.

Formula 1 had recently pushed for a quick clarification of the matter. The future engine partner Ford also recently complained about a lack of transparency in the remanufacturing process.

“Some allegations have been made that I completely reject,” Horner said of the allegations during the presentation of the new racing car in mid-February. And further: “I am fully participating in this process and will continue to do so until it is completed.”
