This weekend, the Australian Grand Prix is on the horizon. Red Bull Racing’s got their eyes set on the prize, hoping to keep all eyes on the race. Yet, whispers about the Horner case linger, refusing to fade into the background. Just last week, a bombshell dropped. A complaint against the British team boss for alleged inappropriate behavior landed on the FIA’s ethics committee’s desk.

Almost in a blink, the motorsport federation clapped back. Through a brief statement, they played their cards close to the chest, neither confirming nor denying the receipt of such a complaint. As for the details? An FIA spokesperson threw their hands up, leaving us hanging on whether any action’s been taken. It’s clear, though, we’ve moved to a new chapter in this saga.

### Albers wants more openness

Enter Christijan Albers. The ex-F1 driver turned team boss isn’t thrilled about the constant buzz around the Horner case. It’s like a shadow over Max Verstappen‘s team, stirring up more drama than a soap opera. “It’s so not Formula 1,” Albers vented on De Telegraaf podcast. He wishes the focus could return to the thrill of the race, not the latest scandal.

But Albers gets real with us. Red Bull Racing isn’t just a team; it’s a global powerhouse. “Act like it,” he seems to say. Professionalism should be the name of the game. Yet, as Albers points out, something’s off. Transparency? Openness? As rare as a unicorn in this saga. Even Zak Brown from McLaren’s raising eyebrows, wondering what’s being hidden. And the lawyer who led the internal investigation? Might as well be a ghost, for all we know. “You know absolutely nada nothing,” Albers concludes, echoing the frustration many feel.
