Horner & Independent Lawyer’s Eight-Hour Conversation Concludes

Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner underwent an eight-hour interview by an independent investigator regarding allegations of “extreme authoritarian behaviour” towards a female employee, marking the beginning of what could be a lengthy internal investigation process.


‣ Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing team principal, was questioned for the first time by an independent investigator regarding alleged transgressive behaviour towards a female employee.

‣ The interview, part of an internal investigation into Horner’s alleged “extreme authoritarian behaviour,” lasted eight hours, with no immediate conclusions drawn.

‣ The Formula 1 world is keenly awaiting the results of this investigation, which is being conducted independently and could extend into the F1 season, including test days and race weekends.

Man, Friday felt like a marathon for Christian Horner, the head honcho at Red Bull Racing. Picture this: the guy’s in the hot seat, getting grilled for the very first time by some independent sleuth. And get this, they didn’t wrap up for a whopping eight hours. Yeah, you heard that right.

Now, let’s not beat around the bush. The whole Formula 1 circus is on pins and needles, waiting to see what dirt this investigation digs up on Horner. Word on the street is, he’s been playing the tough guy, maybe a bit too tough, with one of the ladies on his team. Of course, Horner’s stance? Total denial.

### Horner still has a long way to go

So, here’s the scoop. To get to the bottom of this, they’ve roped in some no-nonsense barrister to do the digging. And Friday? Just the beginning. An eight-hour chat and they’re barely scratching the surface, according to the folks over at Sky Sports. Seems like they’re gearing up for a marathon, not a sprint.

And let’s not forget Craig Slater, that reporter guy. He’s got his ear to the ground, saying this investigation’s gonna roll right through the F1 calendar. Tests, races, you name it. We might even see this drama unfold under the Bahrain sun at the season opener. Talk about a plot twist, huh?
